Hmmm George

Hi all,
I have a Dark Blue 147 1.6Lusso 5 door, complete with Red Leather. A fantastic car i have owned for 5 years. The usual things have been changed, Variorators, Clutch changed for 2 ltr Clutch and Roll bar track rod ends. Unfortunately the rear wiper has packed in. Has anyone out there had any probs with Dark Blue paint. Mine only needs to drive past a stone or car in a car park and it chips. I notice after about 6 months that the paint on the door sills had worn down to the white base coat. I reported it to my local dealer where i bought the car and they called in the paint guy from Alfa who said, I should clean of the bottom door seals every day!!!!!! I purchased a set of stailess door sill protectors to try to stop any more deterioration.
