Re: Brand new Clio pzaz rusting
Sounds to me like industrial fallout (also known as rail dust) and not rust.
Wet your finger and try rubbing one of the orange spots - it will most likely disappear. That's a sign it's industrial fallout.
Look closely at any plastic parts that are also white e.g. the bumper and see if you can see any of these small orange spots. If so then it's almost certainly industrial fallout and not rust and nothing to worry about.
You can find this on many cars but is more noticeable on white and light grey cars.
