yep i have noticed this too...is there anything we can do...like write a collective letter of complaint to mercedes or something? i mean the paint layer is extremly thin.
I'm going to buy one of those pain pens from autovisuals...see if they are any good. I will post my results along with a before and after picture once i receieve the pen (Which will probably be in 2 weeks or so as i live abroad).
Any other idea on how to fix little chips like this would be good
i agree, i love my car to bits, i wouldn't change it for anything..its annoying that the paint is so thin..sure..but hell any car is going to get scratched and chipped no matter how careful you are.
Believe me, i am extremly careful with my car, always cleaning it, ever so cautious of where i park etc..but innivetably these things happen..i just hope the pen i bought from autovisuals does the job.
And as for reviews hehe i went through loads of them before i bought the car..and they all gave it a brilliant review
Yeah, I'm not knocking the paint job (although a few more microns wouldn't hurt). It just breaks your heart to lavish care on your car and then have a nasty white chip in the front because some butthead in front of you tossed up a stone. :x Unavoidable, I'm afraid... but I have started to back off a bit and not follow so close!
andkovacs: i notice the same things, i just got my c230k 1 month ago and the bumper and hood look like a firering range, i'm going to get it repainted next spring. but it seems like it was cheaply painted.
P.S. where in Montreal are you at? I'm from the westisland.
Well guys, hopefully i will recieve my pen from autovisuals soon and i can post pictures of before and after..im actually VERY hesistant on trying this..but hell..if it does the job..for $20 it will be great to cover up those nasty little chips.
No matter what..i love this car..i drive it everyday and i just cant fault it..yeah sure thin paint..but it still looks gorgeous dont it 8)
