pic in the car wash

This is all I have on my computer at the moment, but I will take some nice ones and post them in my profile. This is a picture of the car going through a car wash where they used some funky colors as foam!

Welcome to bimmerwerkz!

Unless it is a lease, I'd recommend against automatic car wash if you care about the long term life of your exterior paint. If you won't have the car for long, it doesn't really matter.

I have heard this as well, but aren't some car washes better than others? I also was given an option when I bought the car to put teflon coating on it (i believe this is what it was). Does this protect the paint from car washes?

It's tough to do hand washes, especially in the colder months.

I'd look for brushless type car wash places. We have them here, and they work well. Although, I suppose our cars don't get as bad a grime layer around here.

coolvegase34 is an unknown quantity at this point
congrats. what is a dual clutch? He's right about the car wash. It will ruin the paint. Don't wash it that often, just hose it down. What happens is, the dirt and grime buildup on your wheels gets wiped all over the finish and scratches the paint. That is why you will start to see swirl marks on the finish. Use the bmw wax as well. Diy car washes are good too, you just have to bring your own towels.
