Fiesta Mk7 Paintwork

01 April 2010 - 09:29 AM

Have just dropped my car into the ford body shop this morning to get the wheel arches resprayed due to flaking (like some others on here) and i mentioned to the manager about checking the paint quality/depth on the car because it seems to be scratching really easily. He said that it was a common thing with the ocean blue and black colours that they seem to show scratches mere than any other colours! has anyone else noticed this or is it just my car?

example is when i was hovering the boot the plastic pipe brushed against the lip of the bumper and scratched it lightly. surely the paint should stand up to more punishment than a brush from a plastic pipe! Never had any problems from old fiesta (1996) and i'm obviously looking after this one way more!
