Just a comparison here. My 2004 w211 E240 bodywork is streets ahead in comparison to that of my 2003 w203 c class as it was when I owned it 3 years ago. Has anybody else noticed this on similar year cars? I spent a small fortune remedying the rust problems on the w203 door bottoms and rear wheel arches in particular. The E240 has only one small bubble on one of the rear wheel arches and nothing anywhere else btw.
