    I had a strange and unfortunate incident and was looking for repair ideas or info for the DC area. The clear coat on the hood of my red '07 suddenly got water below the coat, shrank and then peeled off nearly entirely. I am shocked this happened as I wax and polish my car 2-3 times a year and...

    Hey; Was given a Evo rear spoiler with the factory clear coat peeling, chipping and badly yellowed. Apparently, this is a known issue with this model. Really bad shape!! Unfortunately, I never took a picture before I started it (thought I had, but apparently not). Here's the project...

    I just bought a 2006 650i. I took it to the car wash and after spraying the front bumper, saw the clear coat peeling off just about in the midline where it meets the hood. I was dismayed that such an expensive car should do this! When I bought the car, it had 3M only on the hood. My dealer...
