I'm wondering if others out there have the same problem that I do. On my driver side fender from behind the light housing to the edge of the bonnet my paint seems to be really blotchy :confused: . It is really evident when out in the sun. I have yet to see it on other parts of the car. The car is only a couple of weeks old and it appears to be a manufacturing issue. I think that I read somewhere that it is called mottle? Is this normal with the pure silver cars or is it something that the dealer should fix? I had a similar colored audi A4 before this and there were no issues like this. Any feedback would be appreciated. :silver:
