Paint defect on new car, 2009 BMW, purchased on March 2010. The paint is pealing in 4 places. Car purchased new in March 2010. Manufacturer claims pealing is from a "external source". this is not plausible as pealing is in 4 spots, two different locations. Bmws own warranty vendor for body work indicated that is was "apparently a paint defect ".the BMW regional inspector said no, an external problem, denying what is obviously a manufacturing ( painting )defect.. BMW, offered, a "good faith" adjustment of 50% of repair cost but if it is a defect it should be covered in full as part of the warranty. Clearly a new cars paint on a BMW should not be peeling in a few months in 4 places and BMW should acknowledge and cover a paint defect.
