Cloudy Black Pearl paint on my 2014 GC Summit

Has anyone else noticed that the paint on the black pearl has cloudy spots? My 2014 Summit has these cloudy spots all over it in 2-3'' spheres. It looks to be under the clear coat and can't be washed/wiped off. In certain lighting and angles it's very noticeable.

Do you notice any micro scratches in the clear? Maybe needs a good polish ? Is it something that can be captured in a picture?

Re: Cloudy Black Pearl paint on my 2014 GC Summit

No scratches... I noticed it the first week after I picked it up in June. I tried taking pictures of it when I came out of the shopping mall this weekend since it was very noticeable. In a haste, I snapped a quick picture, but it didn't come out the best as the car next to me cast a shadow. I will have to try again.

Re: Cloudy Black Pearl paint on my 2014 GC Summit

hmmm.... may be worth taking to a body shop/dealer to see what they say. I have seen paint look cloudy if the clear is heavily oxidized or covered in micro scratches (polishing with to heavy a compound) but other than that I am not sure.
