.... I have 1997 e39 - so 14 years old car. and there was only one rusty spot just beside BMW logo on trunk lid.

No rust prove ever made - BTW. i have a little dent on the hood just beside logo, and paint has chipped exposing bare metal. No rust ! whole hood is chipped as it is still originally painted and no rust what so ever...

BTW trunk lid is rusting due to paint rubbed off on the edge. - Don't slam trunk lid, so it won't be hitting bumper, than you won't complain of rusty trunk.

but truth. there is many well rusted e39s. find one in decent shape low km. from good hands and you will not have reasons to complain. remember this is not cheap car to maintain, so there is a lot of bitten ones on the market....

aux. air pomp don't apply to 97 - early 99 as there was no aux. pomp....
