I totally agree about the wheels being a pain but I finally found a wheel cleaner that makes it easier - Sonax Wheel Effects. Great stuff other than $$$ plus fun to watch the color change. If you are cheap like me you can use a cheap wheel cleaner to remove the dirt and the Sonax to removed the baked on dust.

It sounds like the beginning of a comedy routine, so I think I have the real answer.
Most BMW's are in the shop so often and they get washed by the dealer.

Why does everyone think the wheels are so hard to clean? I have a brush from Home Depot attached to the cordless drill that does it in 15 seconds per wheel and even gets the interior of the wheel - no biggie.
