I just noticed this image on my front wheel covers. Front only, none on the rear. Any thoughts on what could be causing it? The car just had the 40,000 service at MB.

Agreed....looks like the rain has washed some brake dust from your steel wheels through the air vents in the wheel cover. Totally normal.

What? The MB dealer did not wash your car?


That is usually done "for free" as part of the (high priced) service at an MB dealer.


Ask why............


Seriously - the front disk brakes generate dust all over the wheels, the rear drums keep it in.

I have 2 smarts. Out of about 10-12 dealership trips they’ve only been washed 3 times all together. Guess they’re worried it’ll shrink them more.
