Beemers are known for that shit my 3 series had the same problem but it was the older model

Did you do anything with the peeling? Were you able to repair or did you just leave it alone?

Where is it peeling? In general, once an area starts to peel that entire panel is going to continue peeling. I would bring it to a shop let them sand it down and re-clear. Of course that is provided the paint isn't messed up due to not having the protective layer of the clear coat.

Leslie, Appreciate the comment>I may have cought it early enough to prevent further spread>it just make a good car look bad
