Hi guys. have been browsing through team-bhp forums for the past few months. I was planning to buy a car and wanted to join team-bhp when I have my (first ) car.I am 23 and I am a software developer(yaa like every body else ....he he he). besides cars I also have interest in Gadgets- digi cams, Victorinox swiss knives , ipods, mobile phones etc etc.
I bought a new Fiat Palio 1.2 Elx this month. I have done 800 Kms on it and I have got my share of goods and Bads with the car. I got a set of Neo alloys for the car yesterday and i was shocked to find rust on the front rim mounts (am not sure whether its the right teminology) and on the edge of the disc . I called up the dealer (Vivek Automobiles , Delhi) and they told me its normal. The car is 20 days old and its a 2006 model .
1.)I want to know whether its normal to find rust like this.
2.)Should I get the rim mounts painted to protect them from rusting.
I couldnt help uploading a pic of the car.

was shocked about the same stuff with my ikon as well, but i guess rtech is right cos' i haven't seen any rust lately as the car has been running daily since the last 10-15 days.
