    happened to mine caught it early before it made to the outside. it happens when water gets under the sealant on the inner arch (constant peppering from stones and grave damages the sealant) i did mine scraped iffy sealant off treated it with kurust then repainted it with hammerite anti rust metallic silver and resealed on the inner lip (hammerite just happened to be a close match for my titan silver colour anyway) no problems since..
    330i sport a big chunk of berlin...
