Thank you for your reply, it is much appreciated. I think the photo is making the problem area look grey/lighter than the surrounding area, but if I were to take the photo from a different angle, the problem region actually appears darker/more black.

Anyway, if it is a damaged top coat, would it be an easy fix? Its definitely still under warranty being just 1 day old
