    Just got a 328i vert (1999) in cosmos black metallic.... the only rust on a very good car is here..



    It laymans terms it seems quite "mild" i.e. not flaky or open to the elements...


    Question: If it was your car, what would you do to get it put right?

    Any ballpark costs for a professional as opposed to me having a go and botching it !

    Thanks, in anticipation..

    had lees rust than that on myy coupe in the same place and it cracked the windscreen as it was worse under the seal and put pressure on the glass

    get windscreen insurance if you dont already have it

    and clean out the rust and treat it as minimum por15 is good stuff

    i'm a panel beater and imho i'd get it sorted. a rough figure depending on whether the screen is removed or not, would be about £100 ish.[not removed] Hope i helped you. Ever need any advice on bodywork anyone, just shout! :]
    I'm a panelbeater if you need advice :]
