Cleaning my car at the weekend, (waste of time given the state of the roads this morning), but I spotted a rust stain on the radiator grille.
Both sides in exactly the same spot.
It would appear that standing water collects in the dip.

Metal polish soon removed it, but something worth keeping an eye on I guess.

Great spot Keat99 checked mine I had the same just on the side you show in picture I just used mens best friend WD40. As you say worth watching though wondering if it could be rusty water getting thrown up from engine bay when going through big puddle?
