Waxed GTI

Today I was at a detailer, they waxed my car. here are the photos...it looks great, almost like the first day of my ownership.
The thing I do not like is that I realized a lot of small chips on my hood! Do you have them too? what to do to get rid of them? or avoid them?

DR Color chip is a decent and inexpensive source for touch up paint.

Looks great man. I really need to wax my car... badly. Just don't have the time As far as chips go, its pretty much just part of having the car as your daily driver. But I do try to steer clear of large trucks / Construction vehicles and hang WAY back from people in front of me.

Funny thing is, the worst chips Ive ever gotten just seem to come out of nowhere
