Blotchy/mottled metallic paint

Anyone notice this on their cars? Mine is especially blotchy on the bottom lip area. Noticeable where the front clip meets the hood as well. I'm going to take it in to my dealer and see what they say.

That's pretty bad. I would definitely take that in for warranty. It's clear that whichever plant paints the bumpers had an issue.

Man not sure if it's the way the light is hitting it but the hood looks like a completely different color then the bumper. How long have you had the car? Miles? Not only does the color look way off but the blotches look like hell! It's bad enough that dealers are doing a shitty job prepping these cars but the factory isn't giving us much to work with! Sucks man you should def take it in asap and see what the dealer has to say. I'm sure they will say that's normal but it sure as hell shouldn't be!

You have you catch it at the right angle with the right amount of light to notice. I'm glad it actually comes through in the photos. But once you notice it you will always notice it. I've had the car since September and have just under 3k miles on it. It wasn't until someone else brought it to my attention and I then compared it to other SIM Camaros. Most look about the same as mine. While others just have a different shade from bumper to the rest of car minus the blotches.

Take that back to the dealer and demand the paint be corrected. That's totally unacceptable.

This seems to happen on certain silver shades… It's been reported on the Corvette site also. Definitely warranty, take it back

Update: Finally had a opportunity to get my car to my dealership. Service advisor noticed the paint issue after moving the car into the sunlight and spoke with his boss for approval. Car is going in next week to have the front clip repainted and set me up with a loaner car.
