^ if only that was true.
Oddly enough new Jag's have total paint thicknesses around 300-400 microns. The regulations aren't the reason they're applying thinner paint: money is the reason behind that one.
Automotive paint is some amazing and expensive stuff. If a company can spray 1/3 less paint on a car, they save 33% on paint cost = multi millions of dollars.

I am no painter but to me it seems that brittle paint systems would lead to the chips where a soft paint system wouldn't chip as easily but more apt to get scratches.
