Washed the car on Saturday and as I was toweling off the rear bumper found this.

No damage at all on rear bumper before hand and paint was intact.

Took it to bmw dealer to be told it's a stone chip .. they then sent me packing only to send me a quote to repair said "stone chip" of £980 ... it 3mm long !!

What are your thoughts ? Poor paint or stone chip Image

Looks like someone has given it a tiny wee scrape with another car / tow ball / bicycle.

I picked up a load of weird marks on my drivers door, which I can only assume was a kid failing to pulling wheelies on his bike during half term.

Looks quite strange as it seems to have ripped towards both sides. Left side looks crumpled together like it's been scraped, right seems to have let go..? Hard to tell from just the one picture though.

Thanks for the feedback chaps.. agree it's not a paint flaw now but also sure it's not a stone chip

Working out how to fix it now as the bmw fix will be massive overkill for such a small Mark :(
