Rusty front wings

Hi I have a SLK 320 SE 52 plate and the front arches of the wings are starting to be quite rusty. A mechanic has told me that this is a common fault in this age of car as Mercedes had received sub standard material for cars between 1999 and 2005. He also dais that if you complain you may get Mercedes to replace the wings - they may not fit them but they mey provide the wings. Has anyone else got the rusting problems and what have you done about it? Thanks
