A defect like that is easily covered by warranty. I doubt it's melted unless you were inches from someone else's exhaust, lol. It looks like the shiny coating which might just be paint is separating from the plastic.

Hopefully your dealer will be able to take care of you with no hassle. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't say something like, they can't control the environment, and that this is an environmental issue.

Any idea why it melted?
Yep, looking through some camera footage over my garage, there are 3 small circles of reflected sunlight bouncing off my windows above garage. When the TB isnt there, the 3 circles of light are in line with one another and move from left to right throughout the day. When TB is there one circle of light is a bit more forward that the others, and is reflecting off the bumper. That is my guess, as dealer said nothing internal is causing this. Thing is, I bought the car July 21, washed it every sat since, except the last 2 months. I live in NC where it can be 80 degrees mid december, then 25 a few days later. I just noticed this a little over a month ago. Not sure if colder weather affects how much heat reflected light gives off, but nonetheless, dealer wont do anything for it. Currently working with insurance. BTW, anyone know where the vin is in the door jamb? I cant for the life of me seem to find it, TIA.

Sunlight won't do that unless we're talking about magnified sunlight through a convex piece of glass. Are the windows smooth like normal windows or do they have designs in the glass which could cause magnification?
