Went to check my oil today and noticed this:

R56 Paint defect Picture32_zpsc8e31532
R56 Paint defect Picture33_zpsc7ab7d00


Is it just mine that has this issue, or is it a lack of attention to detail? I'd imagine it's an N18 issue as the engine is different on the top, but surely it shouldn't do this?!

Mine has the same I had a good look and I worked out it was the black cap on top of my air conditioning fill up pipe I adjusted the pipe all ok now. Not sure if your n18 has it in the same place.

Er, I would ask what happened to your sound proofing though? It seems to be missing!

Yes, covers exactly where the paint issue is on here!

How strange, I had some (albeit smaller) on the Cooper S Clubman before, and obviously on the Dooper too.

I'll have to mention that! I'm not too fussed about the missing carpet, but the paint is another matter! Seems some lazy workshy type in swindon/oxford hasn't performed their checks properly!
