No it wont.

A 2014 GT500 with 700 miles on it, in 15 or 20 years MAY be an 'investment'. Your car wont. If you want to argue this point, you may not be clear on what the term investment means or implies.

I realize you spent $30K on this car, and you are right to be angry at the dealer for damaging it. But this is not an appreciating asset - next year your car will be worth $5K less than it is now and in 5 years it will be worth 50% of what you paid for it. Its not an investment.

The rest of the people in this thread are politely telling you to let the dealer fix the car and move on with life and enjoy your car. No one is going to be able to tell that the paint was touched up. For all you know, your car was hail damaged during the weeks it sat in a lot waiting transport from the factory to the dealer to the point you took possession. Hell, brand new cars get cosmetic damage ALL the time sitting in lots. So it could very well be that there are panels on your car that are not 'perfect' already.
