I'm about to put a deposit on a SLK350. The thing is, there are a fair amount of stonechips on the bonnet. Is this a common occurance on a lowish (34K) miles 2004 car?

Mine will be off to a detailer for a major detail soon, its black with 6 figure mileage there must be 50+ stone chips over the front bonnet. You can see them as little white spots against the black background.

Has anyone had any success in claiming for stonechip damage under warranty? I have a W203 in Tansanite appx 15 months old, 22k mls and there is a substantial amount of stonechipping on the bonnet. Perhaps 35% of my motoring is on Motorways.
I have never experienced this on any of the other cars...
