Car is back and looks great!

Check it out! I just love dusk in Chicago during winter. Took these with my iPhone, but I used Instagram to add a cool look.

Excuse the dirtiness of the car; I had it buffed and detailed and I was instructed not to wash it for three weeks. Thank god there's no snow, but I'm suffering from some serious brake dust.

Agree, looks super. I love the 309s and with the brake dust patina they look titanium.

Assuming you just got body work done you'll be fine if you run your X3 thru a self service car wash and just spray off the wheels. They just don't want you running any towels or brushes over the freshly painted areas.

I know our wheels would look terrible if they weren't sprayed off for 3 weeks.
