Re: paint problem

Paint should NEVER flake off. I work in the industry and have never seen paint fail unless there was something wrong with the paint or paint application. We do in house testing on many OEM's paints. We've actually painted a plastic carrier bag and once dry it can be screwed up, abused, and its so flexible none of the paint falls off.

I would suggest your car has had a (poor) repair at some point. Have a close look in strong daylight. Get up close and look at about 60 deg and along the length. Can you spot any uneveness, mis-match of colour, orange-peel effect, dry, or 'dirt' (or any foreign body) in the paint? If so, it most likely didnt come out of the Renault paint shop like that.
