Are you driving on snow tires? Or OEM all seasons? If so which all seasons?

Way to USE your car properly!

Same here. I have literally forgotten what color my car is. I apparently bought a "grey" car with sporadic hues of blue...

Same issue with carbon black - looks horrible. My wife's silver MB hardly shows all the dirt. But, with awd and snows I can go through anything. Quite a change from my E39 M5.

Proof that Silver CAN get dirty....(it was clean before I left on this trip).







As for the F10....my Dark Graphite is more like White Graphite.

Are those New York tags from the guy in Northern Virginia? Are you running from the law? Actually you can't beat Titanium Silver when it comes to hiding dirt, especially salt.

Mein Auto: 535i Xdrive +'01 Corvette
I am in the same club. My 535i X drive and I drove 670 miles round trip to Lake Placid NY over the weekend. Stock All Seasons (19 inch on Sport Package) performed well. However the Deep Sea Blue is now more grey/white with blue under tones. Sure am glad I got the BMW rubber winter mats - they are super!! At home the weather should break soon and a wash/revitalization will take place!!!

In my case, Alpine White has become Alpine Grey/Brown/Black and White. Even if we do not get another snow storm in the next three years (term of my lease), I already got my money's worth out of the X Drive and the all weather mats. Has anyone seen that darn Ground Hog???

We got the same weather here in central IN. I'm on the fence between the 535i x drive sport package (19" all seasons) vs. going with the 535i rwd sport package (19" summers and would need 17 or 18" snows).

so what I'm hearing is that with this year's weather of snow, sleet, freezing rain, ice...
the 535i x drive sport package with 19" all season tires have done well. As good as a rwd 535i with 17 or 18 inch snow tires?
