Thus, I have been driving a beat up truck through the snow, salt, and slush to save miles and preserve it so it will carry me through my driving life.
I am ignorant in that I purchased a 328 but everyone on this board refers to "e92, f30, x91, etc." I can't seem to comprehend what I own. Is there "conversion chart" or some reading material I can peruse? It appears I am uninformed. Love the car though and will be driving it more when the roads clear.
Welcome to Bimmerfest and the world of BMW ownership! I think you will find it a very rewarding experience. We BMW enthusiasts sometimes get caught up in our own automotive jargon. Please consider joining the BMW Car Club, there is a wealth of information there

It sounds like you are on the right track, by trying to limit your BMW's exposure to salt and slush. If properly maintained, your E90 328Xi should last a long time. You may want to do a bit more maintainance than what is included in the free maintneance plan, for maximum service life.
