I'm doing a investigation for a friend

Did you have any problem with the color of the hood , what i mean is several white spot, like little chip, but too many to consider it like regular chip ?

if you're talking about stone chips...then every colour gets them.

on red it would show a little more cause of its a dark colour.

no, it's really a problem that acura admit in a way in Qc, so i was wondering if other ppl have it.
The guy i know have more than 100 on it, and he drove it for 5 000 km only in the summer...

I have it on the very front of my hood, it's pretty bad when you look closely at it but what are ya gonna do. I'm thinking of getting a red weave carbon fibre hood.

i got like hundreds of them on the hood, i also spotted some on the fenders towards the front, they felt like tiny stones, very sandy. i could pick them off with some effort but that'll take forever to get rid of all of them. does anyone know how to make them go away?

I had soo many stone chips on my Milano Red-S it was retarded.

If you gathered all the stone chips up in one section it would probably be 3 x 3" bare spot.

Check out this pic. I had a few rust spots too.

I'm not sure, but the one I have is about 1/3 of the front hood and a little on the sides by the headlights. I do a lot of crazy Chicago highway driving (following trucks that have excessive amounts of dirt) and I don't have any chips...... yet.

speaking with some dealer in the Mtl area they all agreed it was a pr0blem only on the red rsx, so i'm writing a letter and intent some request to Acura Canada...

so more exemple i have, easy for me it will be.
