    I'm not sure if they qualify as black chrome, but regarding the metal trim around the door windows: (at least on the GT1's, but I'm assuming all models are the same) has anyone noticed discoloration on these? Almost like a clear coat is failing? I have some spots on mine, and when I was looking at [used] cars to buy I saw a silver GT1 that actually had the clear coat peeling off.

    Mine looks like that too after a few months.

    When I waxed the car I went over the mirrors with the wax to see if it helps, it seems to still get spotting but a detailers spray and it comes right out looking good so I think having some protection on that helps, but the detailers spray seems to work pretty good.

    Sooo, do you think it is an issue covered by warranty?

    I think its dependent on the dealer, some will probably replace under warranty.

    I have this issue on the rear trim only.

    The doors seem ok, and the front grill and mirrors also seem to be defect free.

    Both sides, rear trim only affected.
    It seems to be under the clear cost and can not be rubbed or compounded off.



    My dealer says they will be replacing them.
    I will follow up shortly.Click image for larger version.
