    What do you call this type of scratch?

    Hello fellow members,

    Can you tell me what these scratches are called? I've seen these a lot from my country, especially near the rear bumpers. (See attached image) Thanks!

    As others have said, those are stress cracks. I can not tell from the photo, but was there an impact of some kind there? If so, the results of that impact would need to be repaired before repainting, or they will return faster than you would like them to

    Kind of looks like:
    Lymphoreticulosis?
