Any update on this? My passenger side rail is peeling and BMW have said its not covered as car its over 3 year old. They said it would of been covered under the paintwork warranty but that is only for first 3 years.

Anyone found a good touch up paint for the black roof rails?

Sweep it under the carpet.....

If this would have been a major body paint problem, BMW would have issued extrordinary warranty- to avoid bad publicity. Now it is - seemingly - a minor supplier issue, and they hope to kill the problem with no action/silence.

My reading is that the supplier had a problem with one or a couple of batches, but is now OK - or BMW changed supplier.

It is fairly easy - but still a bit costly - to have shop (non BMW) do a repaint.

I just notice my rails are peeling. It's about 6inches long from the driver side front. I have crossbars but it's no where near where it's peeling as the peeling portion is the very front of the rails where you can't attach the cross bars. It's annoying and I'm pretty sure the dealer or BMW won't cover it as my car is a 2014 and almost 5yrs old.

I'll just buy some touch up paint and hopefully it wouldn't look too bad.

Update on this, I finally got mine replaced free of charge under warranty.
