X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

Rust spots on running boards

I have searched and found 2 cases where this is reported, but on previous gen X5's.

For example...

I got my '13 X6 with 4200 miles on it for a great discount (driven by sales mgr), but I have noticed 2 small scratches and this rusty pitting on my running boards.

Any ideas how to get rid of the rust? I asked the dealer and they claim it is "normal". Well for a car stickered at $81k, I don't think 5k miles total is a good interval for rust to show on running boards!

Any help is appreciated.
