    Default Sometimes Its best left alone...

    So it turns out that a momentary lapse of concentration can easily ruin your whole day...

    When cleaning the Veccy, I somehow dragged a bug (or something) across the bonnet and it has left a big white scratch.

    I am getting so f 'ed off with the paint on this car, I have never known anything like it. I caught the sleeve of a jumper in the door the other day, and it has scratched right back to white base. Thats just a soft fabric...

    Are they all this bad or is mine just a dud?

    (NB - Black Sapphire)

    Both my silver Vec and sapphire black Zafira are the same. Must be to do with the water based paints they now have to use.
