Bugs Bugs N more Bugs

Is there any IMMEDIATE need to remove the splattered bug residue off the front grill every time you drive? Any damage to the paint or clear coat. Alpine white is a biatch.

yes. every time u park ur car spend 30 seconds spraying a quick detailer on the front bumper, then wipe with MF towel after the bugs are gone with the detailer.

bugs will leave stains and they will eat thru ur clear coat

Quick detailer spray (get the Adam's one) WORKS WAY BETTER THAN CG

I get more bugs on my 335i than any other car I've driven. I'm sure the M3 will be worse. I'm convinced that with cars that quick, bugs don't have a chance & splat on contact instead of "bouncing off." I suppose that's just a downside I can live with.
