Speaking of wipers, I live in a snowy clime, and I was told by a mechanic, that putting wipers, not necessarily BMW wipers, in the folded out, vertical position for extended lengths of time (like a week at the airport) is a bad thing to do because it results in stretched wiper springs. Now I've never done this in my new F30, so I have no idea if this car even has wiper springs, or if the fold out technique referenced simply puts the wipers high up on the windshield as opposed to in the park position to avoid freezing down there.

Can anyone speak to these issues? Does this car have wiper springs, and could they be stretched if extended for extended periods of time?
