Just one question how hard is it to take care of the graphite gray color ? In terms of swirls and chips and stuff ?

Thanks

Pretty easy, man. A nice clay bar and wax does wonders.

Doubtful. If it's to the metal or primer you're fucked.

Ouch, looks like something fell on it, cracked the rear windshield too! Unfortunately, that is pretty dented and it's going to need a full pull, sand, primer and repaint on the biggest and most expensive panel I would just claim insurance so everything gets fixed and I think the new windshield will also get re-tinted

Hopefully you won't have to wait too long for parts! I know some people that are still waiting for some parts since the Japan earthquake!

Meh, to each his own. I personally think it's a cool effect for automotive pictures. Probably looks better than the people who have a shopping list of mods on the side of their cars.

Bumper for obvious reasons, bottom of rear door etc. Mitsu in general has very poor paint.
