Do you have stone chips to the paint in front of the rear wheels?
Are you experiencing the same thing with stone chipping?

Yeah I was getting this and had stone guard put on the lower rocker panel and half way up to the door on the the rear wheel arch. Seems better now but we'll see how the stone guard holds up

Yes, mine looks just like the one in the picture. I had 3M put on the entire front of the car and had a brain fart by not doing the rockers. Now I will have to have them repainted and 3M put on.

yup, I was wondering about it the other day

Same thing here - it's definitely a design issue. The whole lower parts of my rear doors as well as the arches are utterly destroyed. I've had many vehicles over the years and have never seen anything close to this bad. Some chips are to be expected but the paint looks completely sandblasted. It would be nice if BMW cared enough to correct this by repainting & applying the highest quality film available (though the film would need to be replaced every few months because it wouldn't hold up to the abuse either) - but my dealer could care less.

3M is your friend - done before delivery if possible.

i'm surprised after all of this BMW hasnt put a protection on these parts straight from the factory

Amazing...pay $100k for an SAV with an Earl Schieb paint job. Nice work GMW -- shows a lot of pride in your flagship product.

Apparently, its not enuf of a piss off to get rid of the car, so I may just have to cut out holes for the windows in a car cover and drive it around like that to keep it pretty.

If anybody can recommend a good product/installer in the LA area, please do speak up. TIA

I don't blame paint quality. I blame my desire to have a car with super wide tires.
