I don't seem to see anything on searching. As our cars age has anyone else noticed a deteriorating trunk button pad above the license plate? Mine has come apart on the edges with a rubbery gooey material. This seems to match the stuff our headlights are sealed with if anyone has ever baked them open. I guess I have to replace this at some point. Any opinions?

Yeah, very common. mine did the same. A new one makes so much difference to the feel. At least it's not glued in like the headlights!

I assumed it was caused by years of road grime, salt, freezing winters and hot summers

Yep! Two of three M5's I have, have this problem. The one that doesn't has been kept inside most of the time.
