paint bubble, chip and peal off of mirrors

AT AROUND 49000 MILES IN THE SUMMER OF 2015 I NOTICED WHAT LOOKED LIKE THE PAINT ON BOTH MIRRORS BUBBLING. AT FIRST I DIDN'T THINK ANYTHING OF IT. BY THE END OF THE SUMMER THE PAINT STARTED PEELING OFF THE DRIVER SIDE MIRROR. I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE INTO THE GM DEALER IN SHELTON, CT. UNFORTUNATELY AT THAT TIME I HAD JUST WENT OVER 50K MILES AND OUTSIDE OF THE BUMPER TO BUMPER WARRANTY. GM DEALER WANTED TO CHARGE ME $350 PER MIRROR. CURRENTLY THE DRIVER MIRROR HAS VERY LITTLE PAINT ON IT LEFT. DEFINATELY A DEFECTIVE PAINT JOB, BUT THE DEALER OR GM WILL NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY. LUCKILY I HAVE A FRIEND THAT WORKS FOR INFINITI AND THEY ARE GOING TO RE-PAINT EACH MIRROR FOR LESS THAN HALF OF WHAT GM WANTED FOR ONE MIRROR.
