    Rusty disc bells

    Has anyone done anything to prevent this happening, car is 18month old C63s, I've had it 3 weeks, and the bells are going a really nasty shade of rusty brown. Any chance of getting them replaced under warranty or should I just remove the wheels and paint them with HRP. Thanks in advance:)

    Another rusty bolts thread

    Last year i painted my old wheel bolts, and there looking pretty tatty now, i was going to buy some more from MB, but im pretty sure they will just go rusty again. Are zinc plated ones any good from the likes of alloywheeldirect etc? i assume proper stainless steel ones arent available?
