Road Rash - Week after bumper repainted.

Week after the entire bumper repainted I have a road rash in multiple spots. Shows the primer... This is very sad as I've drove only couple of times after repair was done and mostly in city, on a good roads.

Should I get back to the body shop? This looks like a bad quality job. It must be a few layers of paint applied and thick clear coat, especially on the front bumper??? Please advise...

This is about 2014 F01, if matters.

Never had such an issue with factory paint. Was it painted improperly?

Having worked in the industry, I can tell you that is NOT a quality job. Take it back to them.

I would say go back and ask them to do it again, it shouldn't do it with a few days of driving however, OEM paint it going to be stronger than a repaint..

Different shop repainted the entire bumper for me. I've decided not to go back after talking to the original shop owner (while he promised to fix the issue). I don't trust them anymore. The new shop did much better, very professional job. Thank you very much all for the suggestions and comments.
