Shouldn't an ///M Sport be treated like an ///M Sport? (Pardon the engine bay being dirty, she will be cleaned this weekend) Everytime I opened the hood, that stupid square oil cap kept starring at me. It had to go, so I replaced it.

My '08 after bringing the girlfriend and I down to Florida from NY... I couldn't wait to wash that NE salt and 1200 miles of road grim off her, and get a new coat of wax on! It does just fine in winter weather, but it really likes the smooth, clean Floridian roads... When the tires eventually need to be replaced, I'm considering the M-style wheels I had on my E46. Until then, I'm enjoying the car as-is.

Here's a few from a quick rinse before other wheels thrown on, as you can see I'm a big fan of the clean look:
