Paint Cracks

Hi Guys,
There are some cracks on the paint of my 2004 530I hood. The color is dark blue and I am not sure why it happened? I think it is because of the sun. Here I have attached the picture. Does anyone know how I can fix that? It is on the hood and it does not look nice. thanks

Looks like a repainting job going bad...I expect you bought your car used.

Looks like the beginning of clear coat failure. If so, I believe repaint is your only option.
The only fix is to repaint. You can help the appearence by polishing and a filler wax/glaze. However, the damage is done.
I read somewhere in a detailing forum that paint cracks as the result of allowing bird droppings to sit on the paint for too long.
Do you think that insurance cover that?
Only if a large boulder were to fall out of the sky and land on it :yikes:
