Default Paint cracked

Well to make a short story shorter, I was parking my car and just barely hit the parking block in front of me with my front bumper. I literally couln't have been going even 1mph because I was going super slow. I thought no big deal, probably just a few scratches under my front bumper. Well, when I got my car washed (my tuner did this for me as a favor when I had it in for maintenance) I noticed that my paint was cracked. I didn't even notice it before because it was so dirty.

Anyway, my short story got long so I will cut to the chase. What are the chances that my paint will now peal off my front bumper? Anything I can do to prevent it from peeling off?

Darn subaru paint . And darn me for hitting that stupid block .

Not sure if the 07's are any different that the 04's for that matter, but a guy forced me off the road and into a curb and my bumber is now like white with the peeling of the paint. I nailed the curb/snowbank pretty hard though, i would say going like 15-20...

Hope that helps...

My right side of my front bumper has clear coat stress cracks, it's not peeling off yet tho..

I did notice that here in warm Florida you don't seem to get the paint issues like you do in the sub-zero climates. I guess cause the water isn't freezing and expanding in the cracks, peeling the paint up..

well my scratches on the bumper are all the way through the paint so I am probably looking at a whole new bumper.

the first day i installed my front plate angle-r bracket I wasnt used to how it sticks out so i kissed a wall in a garage and cracked the paint. I just put some clear nail polish down as a ghetto clear coat and the cracks haven't spread
