I know ShowCarDetailing in Anaheim does completely touchless car washes. It is really the only way to keep your car swirl free after detailing. Any washing media (sponge mitt etc) no matter how good will leave a certain degree of swirls....

But you have white so.... honestly it doesn't even matter that much.
My wife drives a black car.

So... I have no idea what kind of service agreement my sister has with her 2007 328 but... The oil leaks are covered under her "maintenance" for free...
So she just has to pay for the valve replacement stuff (that $186 quote i posted yesterday)
+$146 for repairing the tail light wiring and replacing the bulbs...

Not a bad deal i guess in the big picture sense

Ok, that makes more sense. Must have maintenance warranty like I had on the sedan from it being under CPO.
