When we went to pick up 'Tiny Red', we were given a hard sell on a protective coating for the body work. We didn't go for it. But, I left the dealership full of fear and trepidation. Apparently from what we were told, the slightest ding was going to be irreparable, the only recourse being to replace the panels. I'm interested in finding out how many of you Smart owners out there didn't take out the protection package, and how is your bodywork holding up so far?
