    Guys you have to get over that this is based on a $16k car. Ford uses the same paint on a focus as on a $70k diesel pickup or Expedition. Could it be the euro paint?

    You guys should see how incredibly terrible Toyota paint is.

    My room mate bought a brand new Scion IM, he probably has 60 rock chips already, I got my car maybe 3 weeks before he did and I have 1. He has been door dinged twice, not bad enough to actually dent the door but it removed the paint from his car. It looks like a huge bird **** all the way down the side. I feel awful for him, I would be sick if that happened to my car.

    I'll get over it when they fix my hood! I really don't care about other manufacturer quality or how durable their paint is.. As of now I just care for Ford RS quality and hope they will make it right! Sorry but I just spent over 40K and now have to take care of a QC issue so let me vent a bit.

    I know it is based on a $16K economy car... but I didn't pay that and the $16K economy car didn't have this problem so why should we?

    I just stopped by the dealer for them to inspect my paint. They took pictures and are writing a report to submit to Ford. I don't want to get it painted as if I ever trade and someone uses a paint thickness gauge I'll have to explain it, but I also don't want a pink hood. I'm waiting to clear bra too since I don't want to paint and have to remove and re-apply. Let me know what you find out from ford on your end. Hopefully they make it right for you.

    My friends FW '16 RS has a paint defect on the driver side pillar - rought spot. Ford will be fixing his issue. I have to remind myself this car is based on (as mentioned previously by chrisp ) $16k focus!
    I got Cquartz on order. Hopefully it will come in before the weekend so I can apply it on the rest of the car. Also clear bra should be coming as well but I won't install it until the hood gets fix.
    it might be based on a $16k focus, but it's certainly NOT a $16k focus.
    Did you pay $16k for it? if so, let me know where and I will order a few.

    You are entitled to what Ford offered, which is a flawless paint job. Get it done.
    Don't apply anything to your paint until Ford has a chance to look at it and correct that flay, along with any other flaws they find.

    I did say it was based on $16k car... I didn't say it cost 16k it cost 40k+ and should not have paint issue. Should have been caught at QC. @Momo did your RS have any paint defects that will require a complete panel paint job? If it did I bet you would be pissed!

    I will not apply anything until ford looks at it and corrects it. Good advice.

    haven't recieved my RS yet. Might just have it on the 16th.
    If it does have those kind of flaws, i won't be pissed, i'll be disappointed - i'd be pissed if the dealer tries to jerk me around over the issue.

    My RS needed the hood resprayed for a similar issue. Wasn't a big deal to get warranty to cover it, but it was definitely a big deal when the paint shop made a mess of overspray on the fender...
