Losing it's shine

2002 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I have had no major mechanical problems with this car in 21k miles in 20 months, but it is literally losing it's shine. The paint seems kind of dull, I always thought it was applied rather thinly. Way too easily chipped and the body panels are showing lots of dings from rocks and parking lot incidents. Doesn't take much. My biggest concern is the rattle from the dash. It used to be intermittant but is now a constant nuisance. My car and a friend's '03 both share the same rattle from the exhaust near the muffler.
Favorite Features
The interior is well designed and thought out. I like the guages and HVAC controls. Fuel economy and transmission are outstanding.
Suggested Improvements
Honda needs to add some heft and quality to the materials. I know this is a safe, reliable well engineered car. Why mess it up with cheap plastic, thin paint and seats that are already showing signs of sun fading? AND FOR GOD'S SAKE, ADD ABS ACCROSS THE MODEL LINE!
