Couple of car wash pics in cold ass weather.

So, weather channel said the high would be 38 and sunny. I figured why not wash my car since I haven't washed it since Hurricane Sandy Let me tell you 38 with sun and 38 when it gets cloudy is a BIG difference.

Got all the good stuff.. Sheepskin mitt, 2 bucket method of course, grit guards, Gilmour foam gun, Adam's APC, car shampoo, quick detailer, Sonax wheel cleaner, Mother's back to black, the list can go on forever...

Yea, I don't drive this car in the snow so a car cover should do it.

YUP! However, it's been cold recently (for us at least)

Good work OP! Glad you went with a grit guard and 2 bucket method since your car was especially dirty.

Roof Rack but you dont drive it in the snow? So it's just for looks?

I didn't drive my 335i in the snow either but it was RWD, it never even saw salt.

I think I'm moving to Florida after seeing E90Company's post.

That's 2 bike attachment on the roof rack. The reason I don't drive in the snow is because I still have my summers on. When I get an official winter setup I will get the snowboard attachments and hit up the slopes.

Props on washing your car in that cold weather. I'm in PA, so I know all about the pain of trying to get your car clean when it's freezing lol. Reminds me, I need to wash my car as well!
