Down under here nearly all Subies are built in Japan & the paint has always been of the highest quality in my experience.
I had a white 1990 Legacy & a seagull dropped one on the bonnet(hood)? & don't know what it had been eating but I had to take it to a panel shop & they cut the paint quite heavily & said lucky it was a Subaru as they always had a good thick layer of paint. Thats been my experience for over 20 years anyway. I was hit in the rear while driving my 2010 Legacy a month ago & expected to see some considerable damage but just two scratches which are hard to notice as the bumper? is black underneath the paint.
