I've used the dealer paint with good results. The match seems perfect. The brush could be a little smaller, but you'll live. Remember to use the dropper method mentioned above, DON'T try to "paint" the chip/scratch. Just get a bead of paint on the brush tip and touch it to the spot, the paint will do the rest. Don't worry about the paint beading and making a lump. When it's dry it'll be fine. You will need several applications to "fill" deeper scratches and chips.
Oh yeah, I'm not done yet. Then get a good car polish, not wax, and polish the hell out of the area until you can't tell you ever had a scratch. Then detail your whole car so that you don't have one spot on the quarterpanel polished and the rest dull.
