Uh oh, RUST!

Hi guys, I have a '96 328is. Live in Connecticut (I'm 2nd owner, 1st owner also lived local) along the coast so I get snow, rain, heat, salt, etc.

Rust is starting to bubble along the rear passengter wheel well. And a little at the edge of the trunk lid. A local shop quoted $500 for the wheel well - they would cut out the rust and put a plate behind it, fill in the cut-out part & paint it and make it match the rest of the car. Is it worth fixing? Will I be doing this to 10 other areas of the car in the next couple years? I've had the car for 8 years now and don't mind spending money to keep it running but don't want to put $3k to keep it looking decent but also don't want to drive a rust box. Suggestions? Thanks!
