hey m8..av not evn seen your pic..but if its a bubble or blister then the bm warranty should cover it..up2 6years old...i know this coz a month ago i went too get my bumper adjusted at my local bm dealer and i know the manager off the bodyshop..he noticed a tiny bubble on my rear wing and sed i was still covered..and mines is an 04 plate!..its an individual paint that bm dont evn do now tho they can get it..av got stone chips as well...but bm want £700 just too spray the bonnet and front wing!!!get it sorted while you can.
OK posted pic now.
Definite sign of rust
Get on to the dealer immediately
Thanks for that, I was a bit concerned if it would be allowed as if you look at the pic properly, click on it to make it bigger, I wonder if there is a stone chip at the base of the bubbling and if this was the cause they may disallow it as some form of wear and tear?
I can only find out by getting down to the dealers I guess I guess, I wonder would they just re-spray that one little bit?...the side area leads onto the whole roof as one panel and then on down to the back...seem to go on forever...
I was trying my hardest to check that part out. It may well be a case that water has got into a very small chip and has been forced under the paint. Do you clean your car with a jet washer? I don't think ordinary motorway speeds would have such an effectI wonder if there is a stone chip at the base of the bubbling and if this was the cause they may disallow it as some form of wear and tear?
Twas bought for a pittance (£7495) and this occured with the previous company owner who probably didn't care how it was washed. Bucket and sponge man myself. Well I'll let my local dealer have a look and report back, might get lucky and have a free re-spray waiting for me!
Yeah the bonnet and front fender need a full respray, shame this bubble area isn't connected to those two! Car has done 145,000 miles is the need for the respray (think thats going to cost me £600-700!)
Still anything you can get for free sounds good, will have a drive down to the dealer tomorrow.
