Factory Paint Defects

How many of you have noticed flaws in your paint?

So far I have found 3; Front Bumper Cover, Right Rear Quarter Panel, and the trunk lid. Considering that our local BMW Center's body shop is one of the worst body shops in town, so it is not worth having it corrected.

I noticed a runoff on the bumper the other day while I was cleaning. I expected better from BMW!

The paint on the edges of both my rear wheel wells is rough and unfinished. Dealer requested that I just ignore it (as I am leasing)

Bumpers and most plastic/urethane pieces are painted "off" the car at a separate location. Its rather common to have mismatched pieces in this case. Its the bitter truth and dealers will seldomly do anything to "fix" it.
