Post pictures of the area where its flaking.

1. Did you buy the car new or used?
2. Was the car in an accident?
3. Any modifications or changes to the area?

Factory paint rarely peels. Front spoilers on 9-3 Aero's (and non-aero's, too) pretty much all get scraped up at some point (degree of severity differs), I'd vote for poor body repair leading to peeling paint.

I doubt it. The factory rep has to approve perforation and paint defects and they'll be able to tell if it's been sprayed. So first you'll have to convince the service advisor, then the service manager, then the factory rep. Frankly, I doubt you'd get through step 1.

You might get it covered if you bought it from a Saab dealer. Otherwise it is doubtful.
