build quality issues 08 C-350 AMG

New here. Not a troll.
I bought the above car brand new oct of 08. First benz. Have owned several Beemers, some japanese and some domestics. Initially I was very impressed. The drivetrain is great. Lighter C class with the 350 motor makes for lively driving and lots of torque. Handling is solid and the thing cruises at high speed wonderfully.
The problems began after 24 months. First the lugs rusted and were replaced under warranty. The dash started to get an annoying buzz/rattle, the star on the steering wheel now is peeling, the center console trim beezles are peeling and chipping. The exterior paint ( black) is swirly and is flaking off in spots on the bumper and hood. And this is with 4 auto butler treatments.

Have others had this happen? I think the drive train is awesome but all this takes from the enjoyment and pride in owership.
