GT Monza wheels paint flaking
My 2008 GT Monza has the top coat of wheel paint flaking off. It can be flaked off using a soft fingernail touch, which is rather disappointing. First noticed this after washing wheels using normal Kitten branded car detergent.
The official (verbal) response I have received from Alfa Romeo Australia is that it isn't a manufacturing fault and that some foreign substance must have caused the problem.
Needless to say, I am unhappy with this response and they have asked me to report the problem in writing - which I am in process of doing. However I first wanted to see if anyone else out there has seen such an issue? I can post some photos if anyone would like to see ...
