97 E420?

I've heard rumors about corrosion & poor paint quality on the 97 (98?) E420's? I know that they were recalled twice, once for the air bags, and once for some kind of corrosion. Can you enlighten me on exactly what the corrosion recall entailed? I was considering a 97-98 E420 until I heard about the poor paint quality & saw the corrosion recall, now I really want a low miles 95 since it is the last year of the old body style.
Since you own both body styles I think that you'd be the man to ask.
