Paint Defect

On top of my alloys issue, I have a nice hair in the drivers door paint work.

Car has been into BMW and they will try to polish it out. Don't really want door re - painted.

UPDATE (23/03/2013) - Door re - painted under warranty.

Are you sure the car didn't have dealer paintwork prior to delivery? My guess is it did!

Am I surprised ............................................NOPE.
Paint quality on these cars is crap, have a close look round it and you will find more specs under the lacquer.

There's actually something very similar on the bonnet of the red F31 I'm driving.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but the paint quality on my car is truly superb. No orange peal and no under the lacquer problems. Nearly died of shock but came to when I noticed the paint mismatch with the rear bumper. I've got used to this now.

Does your finger nail hit that defect, if so I can't see that being polished out.

Not really looked at my paintwork, too cold to be outside washing and waxing. But I have had a range rover that was built and painted by BMW and that had orange peel on the paintwork, mostly round the door shunts. I bought it second hand as im not that rich but someone paid 75k for that car.

Mine is fine if you are not a fanatic and looking for faults, but in the garage under lights these imperfections can be seen. I just accept them and get on with it.

Ah, the Pharoh is back! Missed ya!
Checked mine under garage lights and, try as I might, found no faults. Bloody surprising!
