Mine originally is from Cali and has never seen snow. I plan to keep it that way, so no pics from me. Mud is OK though

My M3 is stored away safe and sound for the winter and well protected from the great products and service Phil has given me over the years.

My X5M on the other hand...here are some salt pics. Can't run it through touch less washes cause everything is frozen. We need a good detailer here in te Boston area that's for sure!

great pics..out of curiosity. whats the best way to "prep" your car for winter in terms of salt and snow when it comes to wax, sealants, and/or other products?

I'm in so cal and highly doubt any of my cars will see snow, but just curous...

None for me! Haha, I like the way it provides contrast and it matches the barrels of the HRE's. If I do get bored one day, I'd do the OEM black chrome but I'm not there yet
