    I'll wait for the pictures of the problems before saying too much, but with regard to the stone chips, quite often a respray is the best overall option, because touching in and flatting back lots of tiny chips can leave a poor overall finish (that said, the Dr Colour Chip repair system is gaining a fan base, and provided the colour match is spot on, the effect can be good). The scratch sounds ominous, but as I said, get some pics up to shed more light on the problems.

    Aye, not the best, but I can see straight away that the stone chip problem looks to be widespread, so I would suggest a respray of the affected panels would be the best way forward if you want an invisible fix. The scratch I'm still not sure about - more pics in focus would help, but I know how hard it can be to get a compact camera to focus on scratches - never easy! Where are you based - might be worth me trying to point you towards a trusted detailer in your area for an 'in the flesh' inspection as such.

    No option then, you'll just have to live with them if a respray isn't viable.
