I have an 07 Nhb type s and an 07 alabaster silver type r.
The black is terrible for stone chips, though I got a front end respray done and the car looks like new again.
The black is very, very rewarding to detail if your into that kinda thing. Most will tell you it's a nightmare to keep clean but that's an exaggeration.
The silver is stunning and less common than the black and red. Also, I do beleive that the paint most definitely is A LOT tougher than my black cars. Perhaps honda gave it an extra coat of laquer or whatever, but you'd be hard pressed to find a single stone chip on my car.
