Is it me or these cars ding magnets less than 10 k miles and I've already been dinged 3 times side swiped twice. This is the latest one it looks like I can buff it out thank goodness but Jesus come on. End /end rant

You are not alone. The water-based paint on these cars chips very easily. I baby my 2009 SRT and have low mileage on it. Despite this, I have two small paint chips caused by road debris.

Ok I feel much better now. I was about to buff it out and to my surprise I didn't have too. I even made a quick video of the damage just wiping away. And people say waxing/sealants don't do much but add shine to the paint.

That looked more like a smudge, like a sweaty leg or hand brushing against the finish. Glad it wasn't anything permanent so drive it and enjoy it.

At first sight I thought it was just a smudge too, until I touched it with the back of my finger and it was pretty rough. I'm glad it wasn't anything more. Believe me I had the buffer out while doing this video lol
