Dumb carwash question... tires still drag with auto H turned off...

So I went through a car wash today with my newly purchased 09' 35d. It felt like the tires were dragging the whole way. As far as I know the Auto H was off... (nothing on the dash and the light wasn't lit).. am I missing something that would make the tires lock and drag while in neutral?

yes I know car washes are to be done by hand with love and care by trained professionals for BMW's, but my x5 is already scratched up from the previous owner.. and it's winter so I need to get the salt off and it's too freezing cold to hand wash

I can't remember what I do, I sometimes switch the engine off,
sometimes leave it running and in park

never had any problems
oh wait is this the drag you through type ?

I do the one where you drive in, stop when it tells you to stop and the machine runs around the car

I tried the drag in one once, not knowing, hated the noise and was in a panic about my rims getting trashed
