If someone was to ask me what was the worst feature of the 147, paint would be it. I too am disappointed how easily the paint is chipping, and this is not the result of stones or travelling to close to other vehicles. It is just poor quality paint, I have small chips on my bonnet, roof, back door, rear bumper, just to mention a few places. Some I have touched up with my trusty Alfa touch up paint, bought many years and a couple of Alfas back. At least that one thing that is consistent!
I'm resigned to having it repainted at some time in the future, till then I look after it as best I can. Still love it though....
