Hey guys....

Just bought a used 2001 325ci...

i'm lovin it...except...the dealer had the hood painted cause of stone chips before i picked the car up....

everything was fine until about 2 weeks later when i noticed the paint chipping under the hood...right above the head light.

rust coming thru....

bmw says it's surface rust and they can repaint to keep me quiet but warranty will not cover it.

my question...

it's a 2001 with 72000km on it.....

What should i do????? Is this normal???

thanks in advance!

You said 72000 km on it, so I'm going to assume you live in Canada, please correct me if I am wrong. If this is the case, where in Canada do you live?
