There are some cracks on the paint of my 2004 530I hood. The color is dark blue and I am not sure why it happened? I think it is because of the sun. Here I have attached the picture. Does anyone know how I can fix that? It is on the hood and it does not look nice. thanks
The only way to fix that is to repaint. If you take it somewhere to have it repainted, make sure they do it right. The only way to make sure the cracks never come back is to sand all the way past the cracks. If you do not sand past the cracks they're just gonna come through the new paint.
I had paint on an old jeep that cracked all the way to metal so I had to sand all the way down to the metal. It is a lot of time and a lot of sanding, but you gotta do it right

It looks like your clear coat is cracking. Here's what I'd do, I would tape off the area surrounding the cracks leaving the cracks exposed. Then I would sand down the area lightly with 1200 grit wet sandpaper. Find a can of paint that matches and spray light coats until fully covered.
