    paint warranty

    My bonnet has a chunk of paint missing and its quite deep, what are the claims for manufacture warranty? I dont think its done by someone cos there arent any scratches on it, just a small chunk of paint that came off. Also noticed brown marks on the bonnet aswell and cant seem to wipe it off

    Sounds like a paint chip - not covered by warranty. Take it a good valeting place, they'll by able to give you the low down on what's needs doing.

    the brown marks could quite possibly be tar

    got to halfords or the likes and get meguires quick detailer and clay and use it on the bonnet and the whole car

    wash the car first, clay it and then polish

    Is the car new ?
    My car had to go back because they hadn't washed the protective pre-delivery coating off properly.
    So the car was covered in tiny brown dots that almost looked like pinheads of rust.

    Paint will chip i'm afraid mate - not the manufacturers fault our roads are falling to pieces!
    Most likely a stone's flicked up and hit your car at high speed resulting in the chip!
