Stone chips rear bumper

I have a Skoda Superb 2017 model. I had my bumper and reflector repaired just over a year ago due to reversing into a small gate. Not long after I noticed a few lines appear by the wheel arch. I didn't think much about it at the time but just washed the car and there are hundreds of tiny some chips on the same area the lines appeared. The photo below is of my clean car but you wouldn't think it was! The other side that was not repaired is fine. Could it be the lacquer never cured properly? Not sure what to do apart from leave it now. It's been a long time to complain now I suppose.

Cheap paint and/or not cured properly. There’s not much you can do I’m afraid aside from getting the area stripped back and repainted properly. Maybe look to get some PPF in that area once sorted so it doesn’t chip again.

Thanks. I think there is a 2 year warranty from the place that did it. Maybe I should check what they say.
