Well after a spirited run in twisty roads i came home to find 2 chips on hte bonnet :(

Have read this is commen on 350's but is there anything to actually prevent it....without covering it up with a bra or anything like that :( Cause how would ppl see my glittery paint then lol

Nicecar - get use to the paint chips. I have a couple on by bonnet, but my bumper bar is quite marked.
There is nothing that you can do to prevent the chips if you're not interested in a bra. You'll just have to repaint it as some others have done, when you decide the chips are too gruesome to look at.

Just dodge all those rocks that fly up at you. On a 'spiritted drive' you should have no problems ;-)

the Nissan paint is extremely thin so it does chip easy

ive had my bonnet and front bumper repainted already within 5 months of ownership, and even though the paint was put on very very thick, i still get stone chips on the lower bonnet area.....its just the design of the sloping bonnet and the low ride height puts that area in prime position for rock chips

firstly, ill admit to paying way above normal, but ive always used premium bodyshops

the bumper cost me $600, the bonnet was $980

you could prob do it for half that depending on where you go and how fussy you are
