Thanks, Autoputzer and southcoastguy for your valuable input.

I went to Autozone and asked them for "+1" for my BMW wheels, and they looked at me funny. I'll try Walmart.

Yes. It is a great car! My only regret in owning the 228i is that I can't unleash the car's potential on most days.

Recently on one blessed day I was able to, and the composure of the car was...

The car looks brand new now. The guy told me it wasn't easy getting some of it out and it was because BMW changed the paint formula.

I wish I had the patience to keep a car 5+ years, but I don't. I quickly get bored, so leasing for me is out.
