Oh I could spit ! I have the smallest, tiniest stone chip on the grille and within 2 days the whole row has bubbled up. About 8inch in total. The grille is plastic with a chrome coating.

I expected to pay to have the chip repaired but I'm shocked how quickly this bubbling has taken effect. MB are happy to take as much money as I want to through at this...but do I have any come back against warranty or that the grille isn't up to manufactoring Standards?

It doesn't cost anything to ask the question to the dealer.

I have been looking about at newer models and the grills do seem to get damaged easily from stone chips. Listening to owners of newer Mercs it seems to me the new plastic grills are poor in this regard and are occasionally being replaced under warranty by Mercedes. Try them and see what response you get!
