SEAL GREY Boxster owners and paint chips

Seal Greyers out there: Who of you have done any touch-up work for paint chips? Which paint and which technique worked best for you? Any problems getting the paint to match? Details, man, I’m lookin’ for details. (Though if you just want to post a link to a technique that you’ve used that would be fine, too.)

I ask because I just did an extensive detail on my car a few weeks ago and it looks absolutely wonderful EXCEPT for the 6 or 8 rather obvious paint chips on the hood. I've decided it's an imperfection I can no longer ignore (in all honesty, they're making me crazy)---and have resolved to work on next time I'm ready to wash/clay/polish/wax.

I used this: http://www.drcolorchip.com/

If you follow the directions and don't tip over half the paint over your pants and the garage floor it works pretty good, not as good as a new paint job of course.
Don't rub to hard when you try to get the excess paint off, do it very smoothly, then the result is quite good

What about wheels?

Somebody with a compromised eye-hand-brain system left some unsightly dings on my turbo wheels. (Wasn't me, I think it was somebody at the Kuhmo dealer) Are there similar products for wheel finishes? What is the finish on them , anyway?

This stuff is really that good? I checked out the website and it just seems too good to be true. I have a red boxster w/a couple chips by the headlight and would love to take care of them.
