slk paint damage


I friend is looking at a 2012 slk and on the lower lip of the rear bumper, the laqcuer has peeled off in patches, see area in library pic attached.
What would have caused this?, is it a usual issue for slks?, colour is obsidian black.

Sounds like the car has been hit and the body shop did a half a$$ed job repainting it. Chances are it was not sanded down enough and the paint is now peeling off. I know the only paint issue for the SLK's is the early models in red tend to have paint issues. Check over on SLKWORLD
