The E24s are notorious for rust problems. That's why a rust-free example brings a substantial premium. My E24 has rust that will have to be addressed. Not as bad as those from the NE where salt is used, but it's there.
Alright, I'm glad that problem is so bad. Otherwise, I would be very tempted to buy the car. I really like the look of E24s

But it's a Euro....
