Well spring is finally here and I say this as I am looking out of my window and it is snowing. What the hell is that all about? Time to take the tarp off of our stored chariots and let them see the light of day once again. We must also pay special attention to our daily drivers as well. I will have to search the cabinets in the garage and in the basement for the pails and brushes used to bring the car’s finish back to life after a long winters neglect. Find that can or bottle of Zymol and hope that it is still viable and able to make the car’s finish resemble near new. It is also time to take off the winter tires and wheels and replace them with the summer version. In short - get the car ready for the WindyCity BMW season of activities.
