Rusty hubs

Posted this in the wrong thread. Anyway, the rust on my hubs is nothing short of disgraceful. It's a 2016 car and looks like it's 20yrs old! Is there a case for this to be a warranty claim? Surely not acceptable on a near £50k car?

Mine have done it slightly but no where near as bad as that. I was thinking about painting mine. :(

These were mine before I sold it.
18 months old and just protected with Gtechniq C5

Interesting, that gives me a little more faith in my detailer protecting them with Gyeon. My car is unlikely to hardly ever seen rain, so I will use my dog blower to dry them off after a clean too.

Oem brakes are not prepped against rust as aftermarkets are. Oem brakes looks like c*** and that they have been at a war or two after 1-2 years, not premium in any way! It would be interesting to see if the fl is better?

It's not stainless though @D0C so it will always rust. Some people coat it with a paint so it looks better.

Appreciate that, but still looks terrible. Why don't they treat them?! All the effort of nice gloss black packs and alloy wheels, to have rusty hubs...

Yeah it looks awful, my dealer refused to do something about it so i had to paint them black.
