    Thanks all for the suggestions. However, I’m still confused.

    Portion of disc which will be in contact with pads would get cleaned due to regular use. But the other parts which are not in touch with pads has to be cleaned manually or painted.

    I’m convinced that it would not have any impact on braking performance but layer of rust is just an eye sore on a brand new car with alloys.

    Parry, read/google about oxidation layer formation on cast iron rotors. You will see it is a natural and normal process. No issues.

    Infact oxidation is so quick that rotors turn orange by the time one is just finished washing the car. It is simply more visible with alloys just like brake dust accumulation on alloys.
