I own a 320d 2006 M-Sport Saloon.
18 months ago, I took it to my local BMW body shop, to repaint the front bumper. It had taken a few scratches on the underside (by my missus) and generally had taken a batterring with all the motorway pounding that I had done.
Having previously used an independent body shop at half the cost, I wasn't impressed with the colour match and the durability, so bit the bullet and coughed up the dealers rates.
Upon completion, it was a great match (Le Mans Blue) and generally happy with the work.
This weekend I washed the car with a view to polishing and waxing, only to notice that in many area's of the front bumper, the lacquer is flaking severly.
I understand that my car is now out of warranty, but just 18 months ago, a BMW body shop did carry our the repair (at a very high price) and it now looks as though I did myself!
I have owned from new, so there no "duff" paintjobs or other factors that could cause this.
Where do you think I stand on this?
