Thanks
No its specifically matched when you order.

Ive tried it some more on my Honda (used my BMW black for my Honda FYI) and it works OK for little chips. Its not a perfect fix if you look closely, but it basically takes away the white in the chip so it looks better from casual viewing.

I'm still not convinced its worth $60 vs normal touchup paint which can be had for $6 - if you are very careful and use a tiny brush with normal touchup paint, the effect is the same for casual viewing. You can also wetsand touchup paint, which I've never done, but my guess is that is the best solution if you really want to do it right.
