I have used Dr Colorchip in the past on other cars and it’s quite good. I haven’t used it on my Audi, but when I need to, I will go that route. You might consider it.

I ordered the Daytona Grey Pearl kit from Audi Parts Store, through their Amazon storefront. I found that it wasn't a match for my 2018 SQ5 with paint code LZ7S.

I then ordered this kit, which was a perfect match:

I actually ordered from the same seller as in the Amazon link, but from his eBay store since it was cheaper. The downside is that it comes from Russia, so shipping takes some time.
In my searches, I found very few resellers of the OEM touch up paint.

I always have the dealer throw one in when I buy a new car--they're great and very easy to use for small chips/scratches, not so great for larger problems (I had a bird crap eat about a half inch wide circle of paint off the hood of my '13, and it looked like I went over it with a magic marker). They cost about $30 if you buy them, which IMO is right there with Audi Connect pricing.

Agreed, much success with Dr Colorchip system and an excellent paint match. However, paint doesn't keep for beyond 12 months or so. Buy only the smallest quantity.
