Clear coat peeling

I have a 2011 550i and i'm very meticulous about cleaning it, today I saw what I thought was some dirt on the skirt under the right rear door about the size of a nickel. After trying to clean it I realized my clear coat is pealing. Is this under warranty? Help

Sounds like a possible repaint at the VPC before you took delivery. Take it to your dealer for an evaluation. I would expect it to be under warranty unless there is some visible sign of external damage, like a scrape in that area.
