Rust on door frame e90

I have a 2007 328 that bought 3 weeks ago from a dealer (certified series)
I noticed on 3 of my doors i have some rust developing..
it is occurring in the corner of the metal frame that separates the doors.

i have attached a few pics and circled the rust.
What do you think is the best course of action, do u think the dealer will cover the replacement of these metal trims

I would try the dealer first. The car does have a rust warranty.

2006+ BMWs have a 12 year/unlimited mileage limited rust warranty. I'm not sure what it would take to get BMWNA to cover this, but certainly start with your dealer.

I think rust is only covered if it is through and through.

Angry E91 touring rust

I have a 2007 57 touring. I have rust underneath the weather strips on both front doors. I have been to two BMW body shops. Both of them have tested the grades of paint. No waiting for the test results. Will update once I receive the results back. What this space.

Anyone figured this out? I have the same issue. Are these parts easy to replace?
