OK guys, you should also consider that many hydrocarbon based paints and particulary clearcoats when exposed to harsh conditons of either cold or heat (hot here) will deteriorate within 5 years.

The type of polymer based paint BMW, Porsche, Audi etc use are designed for these extremes, and the surface is more resistant to web and abrasion, so when your 1er is that age it will still look as it does today, the Kia will not.
