    Is this kind of corrosion on the engine acceptable on a brand new Mercedes?

    I noticed these spots on the day I picked it up from the dealer. Is this normal for a brand new car? It turns into a white powder as soon as I touch them and there doesn't seem to be any pitting under the spots. The dealer says it's nothing to be concerned about and can be easily cleaned. Thanks.
