My '08 GT has 18k miles - I do mostly motorway driving - my car is looking pretty knackered altready on the paintwork, not so much on the front as on the sides behind the rear window where there are clear scratch marks from what stevienicknacks refers to as airflow on the arches. I have to say the quality of the paint is pretty bad compared to other manufacturers, and yes black does show EVERYTHING up! anyone know who does re-paints, as in time it will defintely need one.
I have the same issue, 09 black gt 18000kms and loads of little stone chips in cluster as the rear arch bulges out an area about 6inches in size is affected.
To be honest i think the paint is fairly poor. The car is very easily marked. I had a Seat Leon FR before the GT and it had 100000kms and had less paint scuffs, scratches and stone chips.
I also have a problem with one wheel, it has 5 or 6 areas where the paint is flaking off... on a 6month old car! and this is not from kerbing the wheel, its in random areas on the wheel. looks like the paint just bubled up and flaked off..
