i usually go to the Rainmaker one on hillside, more gentle than the lazer wash
one time i went in the wrong car wash next to the lazer wash
the one with the spinning things. it sucked didn't even do as good as the touchless one. after a car wash i use Turtle Wax Extreme wax/cleaner, the one with Trilicone. works pretty good. when i want to do a quick wax job i use Dri-Wash n' Guard- "the water less car wash"
thats what it says on the bottle. we have a big supply of it too. works just as good as other waxes and its a spray too.
But its too hard to keep our cars clean during winter, especially when it is warm and slushy.
sorry about this OT question but do the mudflaps help keep your car a little cleaner?
do you have to worry about your BOV in the car wash?
