This morning a representative from BMW NA inspected my car at Allison BMW in Mountain View CA.
The conclusion was: door replacement.
Rich, the Service Manager at Allison told me he believes that water may have leaked and get trapped inside the door causing the rust.
Again I have only good things to say about the way the folks from Allison handled the situation.
I'll get a new door. Case closed
