I have just had the M Package II kit installed on my car.

Yesterday, after washing the car, I noticed that the paint on a relativly large area on the lower part of the front bumper was very rough and dull. It looked like something had eched the clear coat. The area felt like sandpaper. I am certain that this was not there from the start.

The only solutions was to wet sand, polish and wax the area. This however solved the problem completly.

No fluids seems to be missing from the car. What could have caused this? - have a driven through a pool of break fluid :eek:

Very weird. Unless it was *just* painted and the paint shrunk a great deal, I can't see what would cause this. Did you take pics of the problem?

Pics of the car would be great even if you didn't take them when it had the problem. :)

Hey jse,

I think the weather over there is eating up your paint :D (j/k).

Didn't you also have peeling paint problem ?

I'm not an expert on this, but are you living near an industrial area with chemical plants or something like that ?

Some acid rain or maybe the water you are using to wash the car is causing these problems.
