Paint Bubbling up and cracking on my 06

There is a 1.5-2.0 inch crack in the paint right under the windshield on my 06. Looks like a big bubble developing. Anybody else having paint issues?

I think that's from going 200 mph all the time
Seriously, is it an area where it might be as a result of stress from the windshield?

The paint started flaking/chipping off the right panel on my bike. The dealer replaced the panel under warranty. Evidently the panel hadn't been prepped correctly, prior to painting, and the paint wasn't adhering in a few places.

Yep. Buddy drove his new truck through a spray-right car wash and it peeled the paint off the hood and roof.

Dealer refused a warranty claim on it.

Looks like BMW is going to cover it under warranty. Good news...
