Default Paint chip on my F-sport wheel

I have one wheel with paint chip on it. Do they make wheel touch up for these gunmetal wheels for the 2013 F-sport. It's driving me nuts that I found a flaw.

I have 2 chips on my rear wheel.

I used 1E8 touch up paint. It's close but not 100% and better than seeing the chipped white spots.

Oh and u will find more flaws as u drive, so this is just the beginning.

If it makes u feel better, I just replaced my rear passenger side window weather stripping cause my tint shop somehow sliced it. That's right! and plus my front bumper got lots of rock chips in just under 500 miles.

Hey, itzfilyo

Can you tell me how much that weather strip cost? And does that weather strip goes along all around the door?

No, it's the one that goes around the glass itself, inside the door.

It's listed for about $90 at Sewell but with CL discount it went down to $55.

The one I replaced is Part #68142C on the diagram.
