creeping corrosion on a 2010 AS?

Hi Everyone,

I have just noticed a half dozen of small tendril like lines and patches of what appears to be corrosion creeping out from under exterior lights and fittings.

"Whats this?!" I say....

Is my AS "rusting"?

Is there a cure or method to stop this? Is it normal?

Are the older units less susceptible to the corrosion issue?

Pretty much normal, not a structural problem, only cosmetic.
