Family Man - Unless you're sure of your dealer's detailing expertise I would caution against letting them wash/polish your ride (is it new?). It's been my experience that letting them attempt a wash/polish is asking for trouble - along with many, many swirl marks in the paint and the occasional scratch.
TELL your sales associate - NO WASH/POLISH!

Zaino here.
Started using it on my first BMW - '01 325i.
Have since traded it in for an '03 330Ci and still going strong with the Zaino.
BTW, my wife is really wanting a convertible - maybe in a few years I keep telling
her. Did you get the 325 or 330? Let me know about the wind noise and rattle
situation.

forgive my ignorance: what is Zaino? And why is it better than similar things to it (which I don't know what they are either :P )?

Don't really know if it's better than other top quality products that are available - it
usually boils down to the personal preferance situation. There are so many products
and opinions regarding them it makes your hair hurt reading about them. Try logging
onto forum sites such as autopia.org or detailcity.com and you'll see what i mean.

Hi, family man --

Congratulations.

Yep, oil changes and all of that are included.

When you pick your car up, your dealer should give you a nice orientation to your car -- where things are (the battery in the sedan is in the trunk, for example), how to use everything, etc...

I would also recommend having them customize the options associated with your keys while you're there. You can customize a number of things like if the car should move the driver's seat automatically to its preset position when you press the unlock button on the remote and if you want the car to lock the doors automatically when you drive.

Other than that, there's not a whole lot to keep your eye out for! I have an '04 330i and actually blew two of the speakers due to a faulty amp but, thus far, those are the only problems I've had, period.

Good luck!
