In Reply to: Q - cleaning 528 sport wheels posted by Grey in Chlt on December 07, 1999 at 07:35:07:

Of course, it's not fun -- but it's not that bad. You are going to have to clean any wheels that you have anyway. It will take a bit longer than wheels with fewer 'holes', but they sure do look nice after you clean them. I am seriously considering upgrading my brake pads (the car is only 5 months old) because I've never seen pads generate as much dust as BMW's. I still love the car.

: Still trying to fit a 540i6 into my budget, but with baby on the way I have to remember what is important in life after all...and I guess (OK, my wife is telling me) that it is NOT a car.

: Just wondering how difficult those 528i sport wheels (cross bolted) are to clean - looks like they would be a bear as compared to the M66 or even the radial wheels.

: Real world experience and comments appreciated.
