Yeah, thought of them.

Have to say I'm pretty peeved to have to be doing this on a modern day car. I thought we had progressed beyond this now

I'm afraid that PHEV body work is very light weight in comparison with older "real" SUVs. Don't nudge a plastic rubbish bin as I did - that resulted in a complete new wing!

I have done 30,000 miles in mine and have many stone chips . Shame they use white primer on a black car . The Colour does not seem well adhered to the primer. Will get it painted at the end of lease

Ordered a kit from Chipex....remembered I'd used them before to deal with some chips on my wife's previous car and it had worked well. Will do some before and after photos when I do the repair

Do you have any photo's?

MY ruby black MY16 has a few chips on the bonnet. Wanting to get these removed before any rusting happens!

Not done it yet as was too cold for paint to dry properly at weekend, plus had some damage caused to my scoob due to neighbours shed roof felt blowing off onto my car to repair as a priority

Was never going to be a good as a factory finish, but happy that it's much improved already

That is looking pretty good already - better than the couple that I touched in with the official Mitsubishi paint pencil.
