2.0l GTV Lusso

Re: Anyone's GTV started to rust?

I bought my 52 GTV two weeks ago and have found rust on both sides beneath the wing mirror trim. It looks quite bad and I am well ****ed off. First noticed it when i dropped the drivers window and could see it through the channel.

At first I thought it to the top of the door, but I took the triangular trim off from the inside of the door, right where the wing mirror is, and the rusty part seems to be on a separate piece of metal that is under rubber window guide.

Has anyone else noticed this?

It looks as though I may be able to replace the whole part that the electric mirror motor is held to. Does anyone know if this is a replaceable part?

Re: Anyone's GTV started to rust?

Had a good look over the one I just bought, and there's very, very little. Compared to the 1-year-older Escort and BMW I have, the Alfa's mint!

There's a couple of tiny patched on the edge of the boot lid (I presume the paint's been chipped off at some point), and the paint on the underside of the arches has a little bit of a reddy-brown tint to it. It's barely noticeable though
