Im not even going to bother ranting about it. I don't even know what to do, Honda won't call me back. By time i'm done paying for the car there won't be any paint left:sadwavy: I feel like I have to keep the car in the garage 24/7 or it will end up like this after every trip..The thing that sucks the most is that I had 10 more days left before I'm getting a clear bra put on...now I'm going to have to get this fixed and postpone that again:sadwavy: :chill:

just touch it up and put the bra on who cares
he does obviously. Why dont you state something useful? Not eveyone likes a bra. Unless its a womens and on the floor :laughing: :laughing: lol

Sucks Ted.... but I already read this in the thread. I guess the paint quality is cheap cuz we're not the ONLY ones with paint issues. :pat:

i stated something useful "brah" obsessing over it is just going to drive the guy mad... just touch it up and put the clearbra on it. all new cars have thinner paint; its a fact. that's why they're put on many cars from porsche to ford to lexus.

Honestly, it looks like there's a pretty large size dent to go along with the chip... so it's not like a rock just 'brushed' up against the paint and chipped it... its like you were driving at high speed (highway) and a rock came at the car hard enough to dent it and take some paint off.... I wouldnt really call that 'abnormal'

honda wont cover your rock chips unless you got a generous dealer.
BTW paint on all new cars is thiner and more eco friendly

Yeah there is a dent and I'm guessing it was from the highway. It's not so much the paint peeling off where the dent was, it's the fact that there are 4 other spots on the hood where it took of paint...oh well something you have to learn to deal with.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions. I don't think I want to do touch up paint just because I've seen some pretty bad touch up jobs. Depending on the cost to get it fixed i might just get a new hood from somewhere and slap the clear bra on that right when I get it who knows. Just need to learn to dodge those rocks I guess:iorun:

If you want to hear ranting and raving about bad paint, you should check the Infiniti forums like g35driver.com. There are pages and pages and pages of guys whose front ends and grilles were chipping within 100 miles. There is supposed to be a class action suit against Infiniti for their poor paint.
