    I think my car must have been the same as yours, looked great at the dealers but after a couple of washes I started to notice badly repaired stone chips.
    The kit came with all brushes/cotton buds to repair a stone chip to a scratch and it wasn't to difficult to do, I just took my time. If your not confident enough maybe use a company such as ChipsAway where they can give you an estimate?

    If the colour is a good match, u may get away with Wet sanding with a fine grade then machine polishing the paint to get rid of all the marring.
