I totally had a brain fart and my bike fell into my car today and put a deep scratch on my door!!

my car is only 2 months old. Will the Honda touch up paint work?? Please help me.

If not, how much to have this done?

How deep is the scratch. I'd try some ScratchX first. If it's a little scratch, and it won't buff out, then I'd try the touch-up paint.

If it's a bad scratch, ask the dealer or even a car rental place, who they use to repair scratches and minor damage. You can save a good bit of money over painting the whole panel at the body shop.

Sorry to hear about this. Can you post up a screenshot for us to get an idea of how deep it is?

I once had a deep scratch in my previous car and it cost me close to $500 to have it "fixed." I would have cried everyday staring at my scratch so fixing it was a must for my own sanity. :)

I had a deep scratch on my Vette and also on my Odyssey...upon recommendation of a friend I found out about Quixx...great stuff and recommended by Consumer Reports. Fantastic results...originally I thought it was only available online but also found it at Walmart for the same price-$15....and it might be at the major parts stores...don't know. All I know is that it works miracles. Good luck

I tried the touch up paint and some USCHEM body filler. It looks somewhat covered up, but it still looks shitty.

Looks like I am going to have to go to a body shop anyway. Thanks for the help and advice. I may try to use the Quixx before I go to the bodyshop. i just do not want to spend the money, but I love my car, and I do not want to have the scratch forever!

There is a tool, shaped like a pen, that is designed to sand down those little touch-up spots and make them look better. There is also a filler primer available in touch-up form as well, just clean the area really well with some alcohol wipes to remove and wax or anything.

If you're gonna take it to a body shop anyway, might as well give it one more shot in case it works on something smaller and more inconspicuous later on.
