    Hi guys.

    My 320cd 04 reg is showing early signs of corrosion where the front wing meets the sill. This is happening on both sides of the car...The car has never been damaged and is still within the 6 year warranty so hopefully will be able to get this sorted by BMW. Called into them last week and they looked a bit surprised that a 04 is starting to corrode. Anyway they took some pictures and have sent them to BMW UK for further study. Hopefully they will get back to me by the end of the week.

    Has anyone else had anything similar to this on their e46?

    Whats the likeness of BMW adhering to the Corrosion warranty? They already started the excuses saying its high mileage etc... which is irrelevant because its still within the 6 year period-clearly stated in black and white in the owners manual.

    Whats your experiences?
    Regards
    Aidan

    that does seem unusual, i don't think i've ever seen any rusty e46's of that age or even older!
