My determination on e53 is the factory cracked the paint on the pipes just about under the driver's left foot on LHD car which allows corrosion take root.

When my pipe sprung a leak, the entire pipe was "made of rust" there wasn't 20% left of the original paint and that's with 180.000 or so miles.

The bending radius on those pipes is too small as there was plenty of space to do it smoother. Also that lowest bend works as a drip edge where all moisture on the pipe flows.

Double whammy. That's exactly the problem.
