Well I have to say the opposite of what the other Swedes are saying. I have driven just over 2000 km and I have many small stone chips. The roads here in Stockholm are not the best and surrounded with constructions sites.
Like others have mentioned I guess it depends on your driving style. I use my car to the fullest, meaning I drive fast, don't always keep my distance and sometimes drive on gravel roads.
I don't worry about it to much though. Sure the paint could be better but I'm happy with the car anyway. I've already had two doors completely repainted, parts of hood and back painted. If you use your car as a daily driver in a larger city you'll have to accept some minor dents and scratches...
