Pics would help us. Is the chipping where two pieces meet?

I am so tired of my magnetic black paint. I cannot keep it from getting bird crap stains, bug destuction of clear coat, and a horrible amount of scratches. I even use non-scratch towels for everything and still bad results. I just want to repaint with non-nissan paint.

I feel your pain! I had my Z detailed by a unprofessional moron who made it look worse after I brought it in. The guy added some new scratches to the rear bumper and of course denied doing it. On top of this he used a crappy buffer and left tons of deep swirls all over my car. I had to take it to a real detailer to fix the mess he made! Black paint only looks flawless at certain times of the day and when the sun is down.

Default Black

Mines fine after one year. Brillant actually. I have a clear bra which i wax with megquires nxt generation and use scratch X also when in need (not on the clear bra though). Plexius also on the clear bra. I generally watch were I drive, never behind trucks and clean off bird **** and wax and wax.
