The lift off position of the drivers side wiper was too far across the windscreen, so when I did lift the driver's side wiper away from the glass, it literally rubbed the clear coat & paint off the very back edge of the hood.

Mind you, this was a VERY tiny but noticeable chip, which could have rusted or grown over time.

All I did was show Stillwell BMW & asked them to reposition the wiper blade & touch up the chip. No, not good enough, they replaced the wiper as well because it had a little dent & mark on it.

All is good now. When I park the wipers in the lift off position & pull the driver's arm back off the window for washing, there is ample gap between it and the edge of the hood.
