Sad to add I lost my 2011 to Hurricane Sandy (I live in Hoboken). Just received my new 2013 335i xDrive M Sport.

FYI - will be posting up my barely used winter tire set in the sales forum if anyone knows anyone or may be interested. (Sorry - don't mean to mention this here -- will keep it to the sales/wheels section).

I've moved to using the Gary Dean Method for washing in the winter. Google it. Easy fast and effective! And much less probability of swirls IMO.

Per the article....

" As you will see in the following photos, the vehicle in question (mine) was not properly washed, dried or cared for by the previous owner(s), resulting in horrible swirl marks and somewhat dull paint all over. The paint job is only about one year old and I plan on doing a proper rejuvenation come spring time."
