    I have a few rock chips I want to clean up on my CPO model S, and I see Tesla is selling a rebranded Dr. Colorchip kit. Anyone used it with success?

    I have. See below on a deep scratch. It did the best it could and it’s not meant for deep scratches but I was impressed with the color match.

    Is there a list of detailers who are proficient in fixing chips with Dr. ColorChip? I'm sure someone better experienced with the process can do a better job that I can. They seem to have a commercial detailer program but I could not find a list of who takes part in that program.

    This scratch can be removed with paint correction polish easy to do

    It is pretty goof proof... definitely don't need a "professional" for simple chip repair.
