I have the paint sticks for my Kias.. I'l take the old tube and brush any day.. I hate these things..

I used the Turtle Wax colored waxes {black} to deal with minor scratches.. on a Dark Impala I owned ... Far cheaper than scratch kits and works perfectly for minor scratches on a new finish.. start there.. any auto parts store has it..

I bought a paint pen from the Dealer for my silver 2011. Worked great, the one and only time I used it.:)

Good question, i also have a Optima Hybrid Premium Package white in color for 2 weeks now and i saw a scratch near the hood, im still thinking if i will try that scratch pen from kia or not, because i had like the same scratch on my wife's Red KIA Soul and it didnt went well :angry:

Depending on how big the scratch is and if it's just the top coat, I've had great success with Meguiar's ScratchX. On a side note, recently found out it's also helpful in removing scratches from the brushed aluminum case on a macbook pro.

The pen is touch up paint.. it isn't meant for scratches as far as I can tell.. Either get a non abrasive scratch kit at an auto parts store or like I said I used the colored turtle wax and the scratches simply vanish.. so long as they are light and only in the clear coat.. The colored wax does not remove any clear coat.. that's what I liked about it... anyway.. keep it simple if they are minor..
