Corrosion area's E60

Recommended Posts

What's the common corrosion area's on the E60 ... I've never seen a bad one to be honest ...

 I know the next generation have issues with  surface rust coming from under door trims/seals etc

^when mine was MOT at 12 years old, the examiner described it as solid underneath. No corrosion or knackered bushes.

 

Still, it didn't stop the autobox blowing it's Eclutch three days later!

 

Autoboxes, DPFs and water leaks frying electrics is what will kill E60s, not corrosion.

Boot lid especially under the registration link light bulb area, check behind the reg plate to, also the sills they are pretty solid as far as rust goes most have never been painted properly after a bump hence the rust
