My X-type estate (53 plate,and bought it when it was only one year old) has the paintwork on offside wing and door cracking up. It is Indianapolis metallic red and has been fine until 18 months ago. The side in trouble is always exposed to the sun when parked at home but most of the rest of the car paintwork is fine. I will get it resprayed because I would like to keep it (only done 49 000 miles) but I wonder if anyone else has had the same trouble.

Removed because I received 80 notifications in one day and I was not able to stop them. I didn't subscribe on this topic, however I received continuous identical mails about my post.
Thanks to the administrator if he is able to solve this problem.

I remember hearing on a car TV programme that manufacturers had not been able to find a red pigment that was as long lasting as other colour pigments. Seems to be born out by the number of cars with fading red paint, compared to others. The programme was about a Ferrari IIRC
