E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Dented exhaust pipe on NEW 135is

Has anybody experienced this?

On my new 135is that I picked up two weeks ago. I noticed along the exhaust pipe, two rather large dents. See pics.

I thought for a second that I had caused them but then realized that one dent is horizontal with the car and that none of the dents has any scratches. I quickly ruled out my driver error.

Looks like a factory defect. Any thoughts crew?

Hard to tell from the pix. If you are sure you didn't cause this, take it back to your dealer and show them and have them explain it to you.
