I live in an apartment complex so I'm forced to go to a DIY car wash and bring a bucket, mitt, chamois, and towels. I just got my WRX 3 weeks ago. Although I can get it clean after I wash it, it seems the wax is mostly worn off. I rub my hand on the paint surface and some sections squeak and some are smooth. I've never waxed a car, unless you count the auto car wash wax spray that you pay an extra $5 for.
Do any of you guys also go to a DIY car wash? If so, do you wax your car there or wait til you get home? About how long does it take to wax including waiting time? I know it depends on the product used and other factors, but I'm just wondering what some of you people do.
