It's certainly easy to scratch the roof if you don't take a few elementary precautions.
I suppose if you had a mag mount aerial, you could always remember to remove it and chuck hide it inside the car. Oh one problem with mag mounts though. A bit too easy to scratch the roof.
(1) Always use a magmount with a rubber boot, or at least have a layer of thin rubber or thickish soft polythene between it and the roof.
(2) Before you put the MM on the roof, always clean the spot where you are going to put it. [Spit and a tissue will do.]
(3) Be gentle when you put it on, and when you take it off. Place it on and lift it off 'cleanly' (ie don't slide it).
I used to use a 7" MM on two (company) cars. I didn't wash the cars too often, and certainly never polished them (other than to erase the occasional scuff). When time to hand them in (after 3 years), the only really shiny bit of the car was where I used to put the MM.
However seem a lot of trouble to go to, just to be able to listen to the radio. And accidents can still happen. I was reasonably careful with my CB aerial, but not as careful as you, and I still ended up with some scratches on the roof. A little bit of dirt could do it, if you are unlucky.
