I don't know whats more cliche'd - seeing "quirks" in a car video review title, or seeing the words "Hints, Tips & Tricks" on the front cover of a operating system "power guide".

Idk I think the whole quirk video thing gives you a side of cars that only owners will know.

Also I see too many "DID I JUST BREAK MY ENGINE?!".......when the car is completely fine clickbait videos.

The best quirk is when you use the wipers with the driver side window down, the water will get flung into the cabin.

Yeah I probably should. I keep telling myself to do it but it rarely rains here so I keep putting it off.

It makes a huge difference. There’s actually better products out there but RainX is cheap and easily available. I have a bottle of GTechnic sitting at the house that I’ve been trying to get the energy to use. The M3 doesn’t see even an overcast day, so it’ll be wasted on that car, but the X2 is for all weather so I’ll probably treat that car with GTechnic.

Bonus tip: get some white Scotchbrite to scrub the windows before you apply any rain coatings and they’ll last longer, work better, and the glass will disappear. At least until the first bug hits it or bird craps on it. It’ll also remove any rubber residue left from rookie M drivers using those wipers.

I hate when this happens.

You want to crack the window #BecauseV8 and you get wet.

I think you guys should take the wipers off the car, then you won't be tempted to use them.

Bonus: weight savings.
