Vicky, given that the front won't/can't rust, most folks just let the chips accumulate until the wallet/purse will permit a bumper respray. The ones I saw on your car at LC aren't that prominent, and I'm afraid the shape of the front makes the Zed very prone to them.
Nissan's point is that they don't sell a touch-up for your colour - an automotive paint shop, however, can source any paint given its code and do several blend-ins for you. They just have to buy the minimum quantity, which is way too much so is inefficient, and then you pay their labour, but you'll never see the blends if they are any good.
If you use another white touch-up paint it can sometimes look worse than not doing anything at all, but can be the cheapest way out if you get a reasonable match. Genuine chips, which have removed the top paint surface through the lacquer, are beyond the OCDT should you come to Mod Day.
