    No rust is really 'Beyond repair' just depends on time and money.. that looks pretty minor to be honest, I've replaced sections around suspension mounts on an e30 before to get it through an MOT.

    Grant that looks like bubbling along the bottom I would of said that it could be ground out, from what I can remember when I saw it it hadn't gone rotten through the bottom edge.

    Grinding the rust out isn't a hard job mate just need a grinder with the right disc in my opinion, then treat the rust and prime it, then you'll prob find it would need the door to be sprayed to keep it the same colour, a body shop could spray the door and blend it to the same colour as the rest of the car tho
