Windshield Washer Fluid Illegal?

Well, if you think that it is only certain catalytic converters cannot be sold in CA for your BMW, think again!

Would you believe that window washer fluid with anti-freezing agents cannot be sold here in Santa Clara County? That is correct. We can try to order this for our clients, (as we are helping to prepare their BMW for driving to Tahoe). As soon as we give our Zip Code, it is a “no-no”. That is right! Cannot ship to Santa Clara County due to the CARB laws.

So, if we get freezing rain and snow …..well hope that you still have some in your washer reservoir that you bought the last time you were in Tahoe!

This is a safety issue as we have had clients tell us how they had to pull over on the side of the road because of freezing fluid obscuring their vision. We suggest that washer fluid with the anti-freezing agents be one of the very first thing you look for when you get close to Tahoe during the snow season.

Have a great run and let us know how your BMW performed, too!
