    Brand new 85D - picked up this week. Car is amazing.
    Noticed the area in green circle today - it looks like the upper underside of the hatch where this a thicker coat of paint or something that is wrapped around the back-side is digging into the rear frame of the car when the hatch closes and locks. This is on driver's side. The other (right) side has a tiny area barely noticeable but nowhere near as deep a divot. Do others have this? This is a hidden area so cosmetically its not an issue - worry would be corrosion or if there is moisture during rain, etc - would this pose a problem. Let me know if others have the same issue...
