Because I do such low mileage the back discs were rusting after rain. I'm using the Coasting in Eco mode to hopefully keep them a bit cleaner with the additional braking. Anyone else ?

I don't quite understand what extra braking you're referring to. In my experience admittedly with the mk1, coasting literally dips the clutch, there's no intelligent braking, so downhill you'll go faster. Unless this is again something extra that the mk2 does (as with cutting the engine in stop start before car has come to a rest)

In Eco there's no engine brakng till you press the brake so you carry more speed and require more braking force to slowdown resulting in more use of the brakes.
