Dont have the grey but I can tell you the red paint is as fragile. Starting to realize that this car is quite delicate. Had a 2018 mazda6 that I bought new a few years ago and don’t remember it being this soft.
I’m about to buy a sapphire blue K5 GT and the first thing I’m gonna do is 3M protect the whole front end, I also have a chili red Mini Cooper S and red is so unforgiving with chips just like black. I tried the turtle wax 3M red wax and it didn’t fill in the chips at all, I’m about to sell the mini so if I find a product that works to kind of fill in the white chips over the red paint I will update

Mine has been chipping significantly! I have not hit anything or anyone. The chipping seems to be getting bigger View attachment 1848 View attachment 1849
Wow those definitely don’t look like paint chips, are you sure that you didn’t scrape it on a low curb, or maybe someone scraped you while parking, on the top left bottom picture that’s a chip but that’s a lot of paint missing on the other bottom portion. I recommend having a body shop filling in the paint they can do it seamlessly and then get some 3M protectant on your front bumper as soon as possible, you can buy the 3M clear protectant on Amazon and cut it yourself and watch YouTube videos.

Actually it wasn't from me kissing the curb lol i know this because my whole front end got replaced due to someone backing into it and left severe damage long story sort the ****en paint is chipping again in the same ****en place so please don't try and tell me it's from me kissing the curb when I know damn well that's not what it's from. Besides your not driving my car I am.

No Paint peels like that . That is a Scratch from Scraping the Curb or Something Close to like a Curb or a concrete pole Either way the Photos I saw shows where you kiss the either one the trying to say the paint is peeling
Didn't look like a curb scrape at all. The spot was much too high and the spot seemed too clean for a curb hit anyway. I don't even know where one would find a curb that's like 1-2 feet high. By that point, it wouldn't even be considered a curb anymore but more of a wall.

But she had already clarified that it was from someone backing into her car, not a curb hit.

Who tf said I didn't like the ****en car ? I paid 29k for my ****en car , you think I would put that much money into a car I don't ****en like ? I'm not that ****en stupid. Anyone who puts that much money into a "brand new" ****en car has every ****en right to pin point **** that ain't right especially when it's suppose to be BRAND NEW! I don't need to look into trading in my car, I've got a current lawsuit going against my local dealership and the manufacturer, which is already in the works and will be going to court next month. Obviously the car i have has some serious issues so please , stfu cause I'm not no "crybaby". I paid alot of money for this damn car so i have every right to complain about **** that shouldn't be happening 💯💯

True... Maybe the dealer would be a better place to ***** about the car you so love.

Think I didn't go through all the ****en steps? I can't just hire an attorney without trying to get the MULTIPLE issues solved on my own with the dealer. You guys are ****en idiots. I know wtf I'm doing. You guys have your heads shoved to far up your *** so get tf out of here with your ********. I obviously have enough proof that my car is ****ed up or else I wouldn't have an open case. No lawyer is gonna waste their time on a petty *** claim that they have no chance at winning. I've already tried taking care of this with the dealership, look where I'm at now. Dumb ****s. I'm done here . Have a good one 💯✌😂

I’m not trying to get too involved or make any enemies but I think some of us are missing the point of this forum. We should be here to help and support each other with the issues we encounter.
If I completely disagree with someone but can’t add anything useful to the conversation I simply don’t reply.
We shouldn’t be concerned with insulting and yelling at each other as it’s just a waste of time for everyone involved. We all have common passion in our K5’s, let’s try to treat each other with some respect and come to solutions. Thanks, I’m ready for the hate or love. Have a great day.

Completely agree, that person above you has went off on me a few times now for no reason at all. It’s really annoying seeing his rants of no grammar and all caps with nothing remotely useful to say. If you can’t get your point across in a respectful way than just move on please.
