Kurgan -- Thanks for the great idea -- sounds like either a phone call or a stop at the dealership across the freeway might be in order.

Hi DSX -- We don't have to lay salt down or have a big storm to have low grade corrosion, so I'd rather be safe than sorry. Everytime we get a south easterly breeze we pull alot of moisture off the gulf. I would hope the caps are safe as when I do an accessory search using the year/Model search function on the BMWUSA site, it pulls them up.

[Yes -- you guessed my sig pic. Not trying to outdo you, just trying to find something appropriately snowy so as to not get you too frustrated. (lurid )
(Picture was actually 4 panoramics taken with a 35 mm film camera from Gornergratt -I love Photoshop!)]
If your sport doesn't put blood, dirt or grease under your fingernails,
then it's just a game.
