The whole front end of my Brera is absolutely covered in stone chips - I've never owned a car this susceptible to picking up stone chips before.
You obviously never had a SEAT Toledo GT back in the early 90's then?
.... and I had 38 different stone chips on my bonnet and only six on my bumper.
To say that is was gob smacked is an understatement
I have never received such good customer service from a manufacturer or garage and can only praise Alfa UK and Monza sport in the way that I have been respected as a client.
The above mentioned SEAT was bought for my partner Jennifer back in 1993 (I like her a lot more now which is why she currently has the 147
) Was in a bright red paint "specially formulated for the GT model". Translated from 'dealer-speak' that means, "rubbish paint job that will just about last until you've driven off the forecourt".
After 6 months, it had in excess of 200 (yes, two hundred) chips between the bonnet and bumper.
Neither the dealer nor SEAT were particularly interested - apparently it was "an unfortunate characteristic of the new water-based paint process", As was the fact that it would fade to pink whilst you watched - it was so allergic to sunlight that it must have been formulated from Dracula's blood.
By the time we got rid of it at 3 years old, it had so much touch-up paint on it that it looked like it had been pebble-dashed,
and needless to say the trade-in price reflected the poor condition of the paintwork.
So well done ARUK, praise given where praise due.
