Six years? That's some good luck.

I've got swirls, chips, scratches, and dents after 1.5 years and it came with orange peel. I have a dent and scrape on the roof where some wind blew a nice 4cm thick branch chunk at it from ~5m away and ~15m up, and it has multiple spots needing PDR from acorns. Birds love to drop bombs on it. It's also been my DD through snow belt winters, city construction, and gravel road drives, so the paint abuse racked up quickly.

Then again, each problem has been a great excuse to buy detailing equipment, so maybe I'll just quit my day job and take care of cars for a living!
