From reading many threads and comments about paint chips I can see that my car is not the only one that is covered in paint chips. I have had no joy with Honda and can see that many others have had the same problem. I have just emailed watchdog to see if anything can be done and need as many others that have issues with the paint quality to do the same. I cannot see why all of us who have bought such nice cars should have to put up with sub standard paint finish. Please can others email BBC watchdog to try to get them to take notice.

I hope it all goes well with your claim. Honda uk just told me that the thickness was ok, i gave them what for on the phone as it is more than just the thickness that gives the paint a good result. If it ends up that you have no joy, please join me with persuing this as I am not a happy chap.
Thanks

Just took delivery of 5th Type-R. All previous have suffered major stone chips. Imagine my disgust when after 20 miles I had already picked up 3 stone chips.
Went back to the dealer and complained about the lack of durability of the honda paint. They were very understanding and offered a full bonnet and front wing respray with a superior paint. Will take them up on the offer in a couple of weeks when I have put a few miles on her.

lloydy any stone chips yet with the respray, maybe to early to tell. I presume we are with the same dealer.

So for superior paint is this non water based and will the colour then be an exact match?

when i had my PREVIOUS car resprayed under warranty the colour match was excellent in fact you couldnt tell it had been resprayed and belive me i looked hard !!! however i sold the car 2 weeks later but within that 2 weeks no i didnt have another stone chip but then i did ask the dealer to get the spray shop to put 3 layers of laquer on it hope this helps 4 type r
