    That area is prone for rust on the E36. I have seen it on many in the past

    You have to realise the age of these cars

    It's so easy to forget how old they are becoming and every effort should be taken to stay in front of the tin worm.

    It would also be worth you removing the rubber seal that goes around the boot lid as the tin worm loves the area just in front of the boot catch too
