    Ishaq, what treatment did bmw apply to your car?
    If it was diamondbrite or a similar sealing product thatccould explain the streaks.

    It could have been aplied badly, a good claying should remove any of the remaining product allowing a blank canvass for fettling.

    Polish, sealant, wax etc, if you use something like meguires last touch in a spray bottle while your cars still wet after washing it will disperse the standing water as its hydrophobic, helps to put a nice gloss on the paint too, just hose it all down again after spraying it on.

    Hi Mr Bond

    They applied the seal and protect (so called!). Don't know the exact details of it, but their one liner is 'Its like laminating your car!' (NOT!) lol

    Still ain't had time to upload pics. Definitely looks like white residue from some application as it's around the door handles too

    get yourself over to www.detailingworld.com you will be snow foaming and two bucket method using in no time.like what has already been said,dont bother wit the bmw stuff,duragloss shampoo,a few noodle wash mitts (never use a mitt used on wheels on th ebody work,so two mitts in total) two decent buckets,grit gurds are optional and a few drying towels,job done.if you have a pressure washer then you may want to look into a snow foaming lance.
