Default Rusty rotors

I was wondering if the rust on my '02 RS's rotors is something to worry about.I asked the tech at the dealership and he says no. For some reason, rust on ANY part of my new car bothers me. Anyone?

Ummm... unless you're from a part of the world other than the US, your 2002 RS dosen't have drums. It has disc brakes all around. Now if it is your rotors you are talking about, yes it is very normal. Light surface rust on the rotor surface is a normal byproduct of a machined surface exposed to the elements. It should go away after a few stops. Any heavy rust or pitting of the rotor surface would be cause for concern.
