Hi Gang,
I don't know how you feel, but the paint quality on my c max is pretty poor.
It must be barely one coat of laquer thick, stone chips dent the metal has it is so thin and scuff marks show through like a highliter pen.
When i was looking for this car, originally i had been driving a picasso and the salesman said the build quality of the cmax was way infront of the picasso........yeah allright.
I have more paint scuffs and pebbledash marks on my car than any car i have had....the finish just aint durable enough.
What's you views,

Regards

Yeah Mine is the same, my bonnet is stonechipped and mine is a 08 plate car covered 29400 miles, and I've only covered 6000 miles in since September, previous to me buying it, it had 3 previous owners one of them being a pool car we think as it seems a huge mileage to cover in a year and a half when we bought it in September.

By the way ours is a C-Max 1.6TDCI Zetec.

I find the paint very thin and we got hit by a stone on the roof on the way back from our holiday and it chipped the paint right down to the metal.
