As much as I would like to agree, but my CR-V 98 is way "abused" compared to the '6' and I needed only to have it repainted because of a collision. If I didn't "meet" that accident, I would still have the factory paint.[*]As much as you're not going to like hearing this, 95% of chips on your front end come as a result of you following people too closely. At highway speeds, if you remain an adequate distance away from cars/trucks, the amount of chips goes down drastically.
Then again, let's try to avoid tailgating and drive as much as possible in a relaxed manner.
Of course, I'm speaking with myself when I say "relaxed driving". As if I can always do it...
