There is a similar thread regarding their "50k dollar new Cobra Mustangs" and the consensus of the group is that it's purely a cosmetic thing and unless you want it to be a show car, it's a non issue. Seems like the process is similar to seasoning a cast iron skillet. The red oxide rust on mine has long turned to the protective black oxide. After reading a little about the chemistry of it, I wonder if just a little spray with wd40 or something might speed up the conversion to black oxide. Of course keeping it away from brakes, and then special purpose sprays being the best option if you want to make it really look nice.
