Pros: nice finish
Cons: runs out quick
"I bought this item to paint my armour suit that im making, coated it really well and left a nice finish with no runs.
Definately a good choice of black even though i didnt use it for what it was meant for. Would definately feel worry free using it on my car."

"I only used this on a wing mirror cover, so not a large area. The spray was very smooth and even (no spluttering) and the finish was very glossy. The colour match was good too.
It worked well and wasn't tricky to get it right.

"Repainted a rear panel on my 12 yr old Z3 with this.
While the paint is decent quality and quick to dry off, the match is slighly out with the adjacent door and boot lid. This paint is too dark. It might match newer Sapphire Black BMWs as 12 years of UV and environmental exposure has probably lightened my car a touch.
If you suspect your car has lightened slightly with age, I would suggest getting a custom blend made up.
The paint is metallic and the can instructions advise wet sanding and flattening down the paint before clear coating. This is contradictory to almost every other metallic paint I have used. I never bothered as this would flatten down the metallic sparkle also.
For all of Halfords off-the-shelf cans it would be easier to achive a uniform coverage with less orange peel if the nozzles on these cans where fan-type nozzles.
However if it matches your Sapphire Black BMW, then its is a good product for the price and sparkles nicely under a properly wet sanded and polished clear coat."

"Execellent spray, value for money, I have realised it works better outside in the sun, you can see the shiny to it, I did four coats to make it perfect. 2 indoor and 2 outdoor. It does drip if used too much."
