Question about paint

1585 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  omnifrog
Hi all,

my 1 month old 330cic is already having major paint problems. I believe that my dealer may have lied to me (these problems started within one week of me picking up my car) and am doing some background research.

Does anyone know what brand of paint is used by BMW. I'm planning on contacting the manufacturer and finding out what chemicals the paint is sensitive to. My dealer claims that I drove through something nasty. My guess is that if there is something on the street that is nasty enough to eat paint and chrome, we've got a major health problem in the bay area.

Thanks for your help.

The paint is topaz blue... and it is flaking off. Down to the primer. The dealer said that it looks like I spilled something on the car. But I can't imagine anything that could eat paint, but leave the primer pristine.
