Mine is a 2006 325 as well, under CPO, and have exactly the kind of peeling in your picture, but it's a little worse than yours. The bad news is that it will get worse gradually (very slowly though); places where you have the top coat gone will lose the basecoat as well. I may be wrong but the peeling seems to be accelerated (or perhaps completely caused) by rain, or car washes -- of course, this doesn't mean that the paint on it is not defective.
