I bought a brand new bmw 325i about couple months ago. With every possible options on it.
But about 2 weekends ago, there was a big ice storm across atlanta and highways were closed so no way of getting home. So I had no choice but to book a hotel room for the night. So my car was left outside for the first time since it was purchased.
Now the problem is is that, after everythign was over, my window wipers isnt as effective as it was before that ice storm. Before it would be very clear after it wiped the front windshield. But now it leaves like a foggy kinda residue after each wipe but then clears up pretty quickly. But it is still annoying to see especially when raining very hard. Is there any way to fix this problem? Do I have to get the window wipers replaced?
And another problem is that after that night i left outside, the car starts to make weird noises when braking. It hasnt done taht before the storm. Like when Im pulling out of the garage, and im breaking slowly to pull out, it would start to make this weird noise, like if the brakes are very stiff or dry. But I'm sure this isnt the case. SO what could this problem be?

E46holic, your response was not helpful at all.
I am not an expert, as a matter of fact, I too just bought a BMW. I would suspect that your windshield got covred with the pollutants that were in the rain/ice and the residue remains there. I have his problem occasionally on my other cars as well. A good cleaning should reduce this.
Secondly, the brake noise may go away. Even in the owners manual it warns you that the brakes are suuceptable to corrosion and may make noise until the corrosion is scrubbed off. If it does not, then go see your dealer.
