It's possible... but unless it's a huge tree with huge leaves in a wind storm, I don't think so. Are there any cats around? That's how my hood got tons of scratches on it. Stupid ex-girlfriend...

Stranger things have been known to happen... The paint on my first car would scratch if you looked at it wrong. Better give it a good wash and put on some a few coats of wax and see if the scratches go away.

Nothing a little Scratch-out and a good wax won't fix.

LMAO, sorry man, it's too hard NOT to laugh. I don't think there's even been a thread regarding such a question on here. LOL

Unless you have leaves like steel wool, I highly doubt it. I'd point towards general use of a shammy cloth or "dusting" the vehicle off with a towel being a more likely cause.

But as mentioned in an earlier post, stranger things have happened. LOL

well scratchs are appearing from no where man, like i washed it no scratches, gets windy and theres older "hard" leafs on the ground so i dunno, i just thought i would ask. I know it sounds funny but im serious, i let it air dry never touch it with a towel or a rag, never dust it, so i thought maybe someone else had some similar experiences

Is your truck black? if its black someone could fart next to it, and the paint will immediately swirl mark. I love my DSG!

LOL. My dad says the same thing. Everytime you wash something, you find a new scratch, and it is very true.
