WTF. "jagged edging.. " Never seen paint peel in a nice rounded patterns.

Sounds like the rep has their blinders on and is being an ass. I would say try what the SA suggested; escalate and refer them to this thread.

Wasn't there a TSB regarding paint issues tied to a list of US built vehicles which covered X3s? I could've sworn I either read a mention of it or saw a copy of the doc itself; just not sure if it was here on other bimmerpost forums.
