Default New Impreza hatch. Never had paint this thin.

I have had three Subaru cars. 2010 Outback, 2015 WRX, and now a 2019 Impreza hatch. I have never seen paint this thin on a Subaru. The hood is avg of 78um. Some spots are 60-70um. The WRX and Outback were all in the 110-130um range.

I dont see many polishing weekends going into this Impreza, the clear wont last.

Now its just a few weeks old, I plan on super light polish with essence and then ceremic coat it. Its not going to stay nice with polishing and wax jobs.

do older subarus (03-07) have paint this thin as well? I'm thinking about buying an STI within those year models.
