Have 1 year old stilo jtd 3 door in orion grey metalic. Experiencing stone chipping on both rear sills / valance as body flairs out towards rear wheel arch. Front mud guards are fitted and car has not been rallied. When at first service dealer advised that this has been experienced on at least two other cars. Please advise if anyone has had this problem and what they have been advised.

Not had that problem myself, but i have noticed the painted area's around the front grill are taking a bit of a gravel rash pasting!

Yup, Ive found the beginnings of this, only had my car since december, but its done 8.5k so been used a fair bit, it annoying, as surely this area should have the chip resistive type paint[?]

Dealer advised it would need re-spraying and they would have to mention it to the fiat paint rep. The dealer has fitted the self adhesive film to a 5 door but thinks it will not look right on a 3 door. Have not discussed if covered by warranty will advise once I have got back on to the dealer.

i have noticed this on my stilo to, just in the little inwards bit, nowhere else, this is on both the drivers side and passengers side.

Anymore news anyone?
