I bought a new Lexus some years ago and a friend found ( in the Car paint shop business ) 5 panels had been re-sprayed, I rejected the car after only one day and it took 6 months too and fro before Lexus rolled over.
Apparently Lexus have their own paint shop On the docks for just this purpose, anyway NO more Lexus for me.
BMW have this too. It is up in Thorne. All cars come into the UK (e.g. Southampton), then travel up 200 miles to Thorne. They are prep'd and if needed any paintwork or bodywork sorted. I guess this must be rare.

They then go to the dealer.
