Clear Coat!

So i have meticulously cleaned my 330 since i got it 6 months ago, and before that i took care of it for my parents.

I use armol all or meguiars cleaning products for the paint, and always make sure to use two buckets, wash everything, cotton rags..all the good stuff.

The entire car is clean, cept for a few scraches caused by rocks, an egg(not sure from where though)..etc.

but on my trunk there is a spot where my clear coat has cracked and is starting to come off. just a little dot about the size of a finger tip. what could have caused this? what can i do to prevent it?

shit..the car is only 6 years old...this shouldnt be happening. whats going on

I know its clear cot cause i can clearly see a layer peeling thats even with the rest of the paint. at first i though it was just sap or something.
