    Touch Up Paint For Machine Gray?

    I have leased 2017 Machine Gray Metallic CX9 that I have had for 5 weeks....and the NYC garage where we have the pleasuring of spending $420 a month to park has slightly chipped up the inside "rim" of the driver's door.

    Surprised it took them 5 weeks!

    It's a very minor thing but I notice it whenever I open the door. It's nothing outside the ordinary wear and tear that will be accepted when I return the car. But I'm trying to keep the car in nice condition (very hard in NYC and very had with two boys under the age of 9).

    Would a dealer have a little bottle of machine gray metallic touch up paint? I know it's a specialty color.

    Anybody know or have experience with this?

    Thanks

    Ya, the color swatch is not very close but a paint code is a paint code. Will order this and test it and then see (and report back). I only need a paint pen's worth. Worst case I'm out 15 bucks

    You can find it on eBay. I bought one and have used it a few times. This paint chips easily.

    Did you buy JUST THE PAINT or the entire kit? paint, clear coat and the thinner? Does one need all 3?

    I just bought the pen...I think it's the paint only? I use it to cover small chips from. Regular driving.
