I've not seen anyone complain about paint issues in new NC models from 2007 through 2015. There are minor and rare major issues of concern but paint isn't one of them. I suggest you post on Miata.net which has been in existence since 1989, when I joined. I had a new 1990 Miata I drove for 18 years and even to the end of its life, paint was never an issue. Same now with new NC 2013 which is well.
