    I agree with you. Paint is so sensitive that even if you accidently struck the key of car ,hairline crack is there.
    I have no Central Lock. One day while locking the car with key,I accidently strike the key to the driver side door.
    The key impact was not so much powerful. Still the the door got hairline crack. :thumbs down

    Door got hairline crack? Fiat uses very heavy metal sheets for door. I dont think even a powerfull punch can get a hairline crack.
    I can understand a hairline scratch on paint, but crack means serious quality issue in your driver side door.

    This looks like an issue with Tuscan Wine color. I think TFI must as a group take up this issue with Fiat with appropriate photos. What say guys?

    Well, no reports have come in from Medium grey and hip hop black, the other two dark colors on Linea and red/electric blue on Punto. Tuscan Wine seems to be the only color where people have reported problems.

    I think we should demand to FIAT to give "Double Layer" for these Premium Color. :lol:
    Just Joking. ::D

    Did I look like ( ::D ) to you? I have Hip Hop Black and my views on swirls and scratches is ( :cry: )
    Needs regular wash, clean up, touch up, wax etc
