    One unknown bugger..who saw dried up honey on my OB car roof (dried honey droplets happens everyday in my office parking)..thought..this is looking bad on this beautiful car...and has tried to remove it using some key or stone...and ended up scratching a small area on car roof....downside of being beautiful :)

    Any Dark color is very difficult to maintain in Indian conditions..
    I bought a black (then the name 'Theblack') , I knew what i was getting into. But later i realized its a very tough job .
    But i like spending time with my dear so i guess it evens out.

    My linea (flamenco red) was also scratched over bonnet by stone by some kids. After doing polishing with rubbing compound it did not disappear.
    Couple of days back i noticed loss of paint about 3mm of size with exposed primer underneath. This circular loss of paint was also over bonnet but some distance away from the previous scrathces. What do experts of TFI thinks : do repainting or touch up only?

    Owning a car is one thing but maintaining it is a totally different ball game.Car scratches can be incredibly frustrating–tiny flaws are expensive to have fixed professionally, but it's also hard to ignore them.
    I also facing this problem.This information will be helpful for me...thanks everyone....
