Car wash at Mega mall, oshiwara andheri west. There are similar washes at pheonix mill , and inorbit and couple of other malls. Not tried any of the other places though.

Great washing process, atleast somewhat will help to avoid scratches and swirl marks due to washing.

Wow thats a very interesting car wash. Can you please tell me how much they charge for a wash ?

yeah shouldnt be a problem. I have seen BMW service people wash the bay as well.

On the right top side of the engine where the DME unit (electricals + computer etc) is , i get that wrapped up with plastic since that has sign on it "no washing with pressure pipe"

About Rs 500.
6 or 7 people spend minimum 1 hour on the car.
Also vacuum the interiors

They charge less for hatchbacks.

I've driven through the monsoons in Mumbai, but I never knew that cars could get that dirty?! Or maybe it just looks like that because your car is white?

Great thread and a great car!

Must be an absolute hoot to drive; especially with the top down! But 80 lakhs is something I didn't expect. Looks like the sDrive 35i's closest competitor is the Porsche Boxster S. Did you consider the Poker before deciding on the Z4? Just curious.

Absolutely. The new Z4 sDrive 35i is proving to be quite a handful for many including the Boxster. Congratulations, suvm. You are a very very lucky man!
