Is the black paint dripping?

Hello everyone, I need assistance. I have seen that the paint on my automobile seems to have dripped over the chrome grill and lettering. The bodywork remains in its original condition since it has never undergone any repainting. I am uncertain about the cause or solution of the issue, however as I was driving, I saw another vehicle of the same kind experiencing a similar problem. Assistance would be much appreciated.

An establishment that specialises in selling paint and related products. It is not worthwhile if you intend to return it for another round of washing. They will just replicate the effect.
I prohibit anybody from washing or polishing my automobile. I like the surface to be filthy rather than allowing their sponges, filled with grit, to come into contact with it.

Indeed, I refrain from using car wash services for my Evoque due to their use of highly abrasive substances and their inadequate cleaning efficacy.I will undertake the task independently, despite my advancing age.
Upon purchasing my vehicle in May of this year, it seems that it had a thorough detailing process, as it now has a remarkable sheen. One would hardly believe that it is almost 8 years old and has only accumulated 52,000 kilometres.

Regrettably, the one solution to address this issue is to replace the lettering and grille, unless you possess the option to have them repainted alongside the bonnet.

I don't believe you would have much opposition with the establishment's disclaimer that washing is done at the owner's own risk, but it is worth trying.

It is strongly advised, as said before and in other blogs, to avoid using a drive-through car wash located on a street corner.

Your reasoning is indeed accurate. A few years ago, I had a Celica and now I am interested in visiting a nearby drive-through car wash. The paint finish was left lacklustre and the powder coating on my wheels was completely gone. This occurred gradually after a few days of being cleansed. Upon returning, it was evident that I was very distressed. They responded by stating that it is not our responsibility, my friend, and you are unable to provide any evidence. ☹ I have not used any of them thereafter.
If you have a strong affection for your baby, I am certain that she would prefer the gentle touch of your hands combined with high-quality and luxurious goods on her body, rather than being handled by an unkempt foreign individual carrying a container of corrosive acid, who lacks any concern or care.

 I completely concur with all you have said. Our cherished possessions come with a hefty price tag, therefore it is perplexing why one would choose to use such establishments.

The drive-through brush roller establishments provide a paint finish akin to an ice rink. Similarly, the sponges used by manual vehicle washes contain tubs of dirty water, grit, and potent chemicals.

While this information may be valuable in retrospect, it is advisable not to use it after you have resolved the issue with your automobile.
