I had a similar problem with my '00 e38 Sport. One Summer day I decided to give my ride a thorough cleaning. I pulled off the bottom moldings only to find bubbling along the bottom seams. I grinded off all the beads to see corrision along the bottom of the seams on 3 of the 4 doors. A couple of doors had to have the beads removed halfway up the doors!.

Took the car to Meadowvale Collision (part of the Atlantic group of companies) and had them do finishing prep, bead, paint. I pass by this palce everyday. Carstar and European wanted a lot of money for the work which I couldn't justify. Once I got the car back it gets Winter stored after an annual oil spray to keep corrosion at bay.

It's been four years since I had the repair done and so far so good. No more reappearance of the cancer.
