Paint Finish or is it just me?
I was just wondering if anyone has noticed this. The paint finish on new mercs... I own three. ML350 and a CLK320. I recently bought my wife an R350 and my daughter a C class and something I have noticed over the years and in particular with the R series is the poor paint finish.
The orange peel or ripple in the paint job is very bad. To be honest I have painted cars myself and acheived a much better result and I am not a painter by trade. Now in every case I have purchased the car I wanted and waited until it arrives then pick it up. Had I seen the car first I would have walked away. I recently went to my local Benz dealer just to see if it was the way its done these days and it is.
I think Mercedes should have a close look at this because I think I will be heading back to BMW. Anyone else notice this?
