I took delivery in January 2012. They sent someone from the factory to look at it with special devices. Then they flat-bedded my car to a special body shop north of Atlanta that only deals with high-end cars (my car looked like a clunker compared to the Lambos and Ferraris on their lot). The shop repainted every panel that had a problem and they did a great job.

The guy from the factory seemed genuinely shocked at all the issues, but having read this post and other paint-related posts on this forum, I really think BMW's paint sucks.

But, before I picked up my new X3 at the PCD, I went over it with a flashlight and magnifying glass and the paint is flawless (except for some slight orange peel to it). So, you should be ok, Noka.
