: yep mine too ... but I am not just getting chips..which I could understand in small amounts .. but anywhere the paint gets impacted the paint blisters up around the area of the chip.... or impact area in cases where the impact wasnt strong enough to take paint.... what do you all think? BMW gave me the standard run around.. not covered...but I am going to call the complaint number and tell them that I am not satisfied with the dealerships paint guy saying " learn to live with it... get over it" .. thats bull... on a $43k car....
I think it's ridiculous that Z-3 owners have to consider fixes like that 3-M film SCOTCHCAL for substandard paint durabilty.
I suspect the problem lies in the application at Spartansburg assembly plant.i.e. metal prep,etc.
Surely by now BMW has smelled the coffee and made corrections at the plant!
BMW would never take responsibilty. Imagine the liabilty!
