Yeah, it was new. The car was about 18 months old. I took it in, they measured the depth of the paint and agreed to respray it.
They decided it was painted to thin before the stone chips were that bad.
It's gotta be worth a try before you fork out any money

I got my fiesta resprayed by Ford because of stone chips down the side....
If it had been painted properly in the first place bird !Removed! wouldn't have caused the damage.
It's worth a try anyway eh?
My evo x gets 25mpg if driven at the speed limits and needs serviced every 10k miles.
Sorry gents, I felt the need to defend my 3rd child!
I ended up with it because I couldn't justify the idiotic prices of Quattro's.
Had this on my white focus mate, bought myself a claybar and went over the whole car with that and removed them all! Very time consuming mind you but well worth it, paintwork comes out smooth with no spots!
Autosmart tardis for organic removal (tar etc) and auto finesse iron out for inorganic (Orange dots. Railway dust etc)
If you're lucky, you might not ever have to clay again!
Take the bonnet art off, put the original wheels back on and leave it as it is.
I would at least keep the original wheels and don't do anything that's irreversible.
The collection is not exactly collectable, but tidy one's are getting rare. If you keep it standard and make it mint, you might get someone like me that had one when they were younger that will give you a very fair price for it
Polish you could use after the was like a sealant i guess?

Don't mean to be an !Removed! here.....
99% of the time, polish is either: 1. Abrasive and removes fine scratches or blemishes by removing a tiny layer of paint. Or 2. A filler, and fills the scratches, effectively hiding or masking imperfections in the paint. 3. Both of the above.
If the polish your using is the abrasive kind and you do it after waxing, you'll be taking the wax you just spend so long applying back off again!
