anyone else notice how easy it is to scratch the paint down to the undercoat? I've got a 96 legacy and it just seems like the paint is tissue thin.

My 95 Legacy sedan is the same way.

For what it is worth, everyday I work on a brand new car or 2 and this is not just a Subaru thing. Car manufacturers continue to work to expand their profits while keeping the cost of building a car for low prices. They save a little here and a little there. Things like cutting back on the paint. Some parts of cars have become sooooo cheap that I sometimes wonder why certain things take so long to break.

Just my 2 cents.

Yeah, but i just don't get it. They make everything cheap as hell, then they add on dumb stuff that's useless and a waste of money. i see this mostly on high-line cars, bmw, benz, etc
