I think it must be to do with the fact that Mitsi have no control over what might have hit / scratched / dented / bounced of the outside of the car but they can warrant the sealing / internal treatment of the chassis / panels / etc?

Incidentally, I was giving mine a spit and polish yesteday and noticed 2 new tiny rust spots - macthing ones to the bottom corner of each rear wheel arch (just above the sill near the lower point of each rear door). Anyone else encountered this as a weak spot for manky stone-chips??

That spot is common for rust as the spoiler pushes down on it and rubs when it's under load.

I've seen a few Evos with rust there, and it's not down to perforation of the paint by anything other than the Mitsi spoiler.

I have found that Mitsi warranties are not worth the paper they are written on when it comes to rust/corrosion :wallbang:.

Just bite the bullet and get yourself down to a good bodyshop.
