This is common in new cars. I was just checking out a VW - Passat. The paint is identical to Civic's paint.. has that orange peel look to it when looked up closeFrom a distance, the paintwork is like a mirror
But up close
This is a crop of the pic in the first post.
It's not pixalation - this is simply a cropped part of the image taken on a 6MP camera from about 5 feet away.
Would the clay bar not remove the lacquer coat?Many thanks all
I do love it very much, but I am a bit disappointed about the orange peel up close
My previous car was in a metalic blue (mauritius), and even with your nose to the metal it was 'smooth'
Hey ho - from more than a foot or so away it looks fine - might just need to wait for a week off and attack it with some clay bar one panel at a time
