I can understand it's probably for aerodynamics, but it's very possible someone may try to raise the wipers without knowing the procedure and damage them.
Is this how it is for all BMW's? What about Mercedes,Audi, Lexus?
I had a 2002 Z3 where the only way to get the wipers off the windshield was to first lift the hood, then pull the wipers away - under the open hood! The first time I did that I shut the hood forgetting the wipers, and bent one of the wiper arms.
