how bad is this? a small hairline paint crack, a little bit of paint scraped off the rear diffusor grey trim.. Touch up paint?
Its hard to see unless your really paying attention or kneel down to see the exhaust tips









if you look close at these you can see the hairline crack in the paint :(

I have reversed into all sorts of stuff and stopped caring after the 5th time.
Just drive it, stop caring and fix when you get some more scratches and stone chips (100% guaranteed with the shit quality paint) and do it all at one time.

Don't sweat the small stuff and enjoy the car.

are you saying you caused this yourself or it just started to happen out of the blue?

Thanks, i slowly backed up into another car, probably not going more then 2-3mph,
the other car got it a lot worse, very noticeable.

I keep hearing the GTR has shitty paint, does that mean it cracks easily? Will it start to fade over time?

Im considering just buying a 8$ touch up paint marker and just live with it, i woke up this morning and went to go check it out in the sun, very hard to tell, my brother couldn't even find it haha.

Go for it - you'll probably be the only person who even knows it's there.

Regarding the GTR's shitty paint - yes. Chips very easily; no cracks so far on my 09 SS (I DD on a section of the PA Turnpike which sometimes resembles Baja). Also no fading, even though the car is outdoors most of the time.

Small chips aren't so noticeable on the SS, but my hood (and windshield) are a disaster when you get up close.

You had your car 2 weeks and you already wrecked it!



Im just giving you shit. lol. I wouldnt worry about it. Wax it out, and maybe get a aftermarket lower
or wrap it in some vinyl.

Is it me or is it impossible to find a touch up paint marker matching the carbon fiber bits on our car? ( front lip , rear diffuser , side skirts )
