E91 rust...

Hi guys

Been away from the fold for a couple of years but currently toying between buying an e91 325d or an f31 320d.

The E91 Iím considering is a Le Mans 2007 e91 but itís got bubbling on the rear arches (photos below)

From my last couple and experience of others, I was under the assumption that e9x donít tend to have rust issues..

Do we think this has had a poor repair or are they prone to going? Itís the front of both rear arches.

The car is cheap enough for me to consider getting them sorted in a few months but Iím reluctant to spend £2500 on a car that potentially has a past if itís been repaired.. itís HPI clear.

Thoughts on the rust?

Cheers

Open the door and look on the inside or open the fuel cap and look at the paint work, it will be very clear if it's been repainted as you'll see the imperfections of where it's been masked up.

But, how an accident would have caused repainting on both arches seems a bit weird :/

Yeah I agree, just never seen one with rust like that. I decided to avoid it as something didnít sit right with me.

Ended up picking up a high mile f11 in the end, just seemed better value for money...
