    Default Problem with Arden Blue Paint

    Hi. I’m new to the forum but hope someone will recognise the problem I have. My 3 year old VXR has 6800 miles on it. Not driven for a year and the bonnet and whole of the drivers side look like they have white measles! Surely this isn’t right. Is my paint too soft. Warranty have refused a repaint. I drive on local roads, never follow gritters in the winter! Does anyone else have a problem with their Arden Blue? Thanks in advance

    What was the reason for Vauxhall rejecting the warranty claim?

    my 14 plate Arden blue came complete with mud flaps which stop wheels from flicking stones up onto the side panels. I have a few chips but not many. There are several chips scattered across the front panel / bonnet. A touch-up job for later in the summer. Get some mud flaps fitted !! Modern paint is water based and not fit for purpose but we just have to put up with it - European Union rules ??
