I also have a white EX, and mine has 15,000 miles on it. I've had two chips on the hood -- both thanks to I-95 as I traveled to Florida. For those, I had a pro do a proper job. But, unfortunately, I've also had numerous tiny chips on the front bumper. For most of those low to the ground blemishes, I've decided to use white appliance paint to touch them up. To me, that is not a critical, in-your-face part of the vehicle, and so the easy-to-apply gloss appliance paint does the job. I know purists won't agree, but, hey, it works for me.I have a white EX and i put on a ceramic coating to protect it. My wife has a forte EX+ with only 700km and it has 2 paint chips already. I think that maybe all the new KIAs have all the same problem with the paint job.
