Welcome to the world of form over function. That's what happens when cars don't have 'mud guards'. I'd have welcomed subtle ones, like many cars have either standard or optional (the latter not available for M3s).
Anyway, my car with just a hair over 9K miles basically has no paint behind all 4 wheels, so I don't even bother touching up anything. The good news is you pretty much have to get on your knees to see anything. But it's ridiculous. And yes, the crappy desert southwest has something to do with that. Good day.
