Question Light bars and car wash's

OK i posted this in the wrong forum so i am going to re-post it here since you guys might have some better insight:


I have been eyeing a light bar for the front bumper of my Crosstrek. The issue I was thinking of is that during the NY winters i cant wash the car. We don't have those do it yourself, drive in and wash's.

Has anyone ever had any issues going through a car wash with a front bumper light bar? looking at the Rally innovations one:

any issue with the lights, the bar, stuff i am not even thinking of?

any help would be great.

With my old wagon I would go in with my roof rack and wind fairing on. I never had a problem. Then I learned about how those washes can be hard on the paint and cause swirling so I ditched the cloth wash and started using a good touchless automatic wash in the winter. I would say go touchless if you can't wash it yourself, your light bar and your paint will be much better off.
