Is the Tesla Paint Repair Kit on the Midnight Silver Metallic any good for this?

Anyone have experience with the Tesla Paint Repair Kit on the Midnight Silver Metallic color and would it be able to cover this well. This happened last night and I've had the car just over a month. It’s a small scratch but it still bothers me.

If your don't need anything fancy, you can go to Walmart, Target, Pepboys, etc and get Meguiars Scratch or any scratch remover. Just remember to re-wax the area once done, either after you buff it out or if you do have to use touch up

Try that and if that doesn’t do it, use the touch up paint and then polish after it is completely dried for a smooth finish. You can use the same compound Meguiars Scratch or something stronger like polishing compound from Meguiars too.

This is the best and easiest I've tried. If you don't have a small drill you can buy just the Scratch-X and do it by hand, but it takes a little longer,

Thanks again everyone for the advice. Meguiar’s Stratch X 2.0 is amazing. Here are the before and after photos.
