I have a small chip in my windshield from a rock (two weeks after I received my car) and I have a couple of tiny stone chips in my paint, in the front and one right next to the heat extractor on the passenger side nothing too bad, but I guess that is expected when you drive it on a daily basis.

No dings yet but I do have a small chip in the front bumper down low. You can't see it unless you squat down and look at the front of the car.

I've got to admit, when I think about it, I might be persuaded to trade a small ding/chip for the ability to drive these cars year round.

Although you're all unlucky with the dings/chips, you get to drive and enjoy these gems.

Weather update from Calgary in farenheit, yesterday a beautiful 62 (16c) and sunny, today we wake up to 20 (-6c) degrees and 6 inches (15 cms) of snow with another inch (2 1/2 cms) to fall before we warm up to 38 (3c) and sunny by this afternoon. Crazy weather!

Ouch!!! Stone chips.....PatientMan, Red Shelby, Elete1, Limopop, sorry to hear that. But, like Elete said 'if you're gonna drive it', it's bound to happen. Knock on wood.......... I've been really laying back from anybody in front of me if I can't pass them. But I'm sure my day is coming. Just part of driving.........:mad: :mad: :mad:

Hail Dent:confused: .You drive your Shelby in hail? It must have been a big one as the hail in ca isn't big enough. Sorry you got nailed. GGBIW

Hail is my biggest worry in Denver. I won't be driving in storms, but sometimes the T-Storms come out of nowhere, and the hail can get BIG!
