    White Diamond Tricoat Orange Peel

    We purchased a new 2013 XTS this week, and I have noticed that the White Diamond Tricoat paint has quite a bit of "orange peel" in the paint on the body, but very little on the plastic bumpers/fascia. Our 2012 SRX Platinum Ice Tricoat paint is virtually free of orange peel.
    Have any other XTS Forum members noticed similar paint quality concerns?
    Thanks for your input.

    Yes I have black and it has tremendous amount of orange peal . I believe they use that to cover up imperfections in metal panels on vehicle which explains why plastic bumpers and trim don't have as much.

    Not to mention that the plastic fascias are painted at another location doesn't help either. Especially with
    The white diamond tricoat.
