Default Self auto wash bays in Chantilly?

I just started working in Chantilly and I'm looking for a self auto wash bay. Any near the intersection of 28 and 50?

Thanks!

The only good car wash I know of in Chantilly is an automatic one with brushes. It would probably remove 1/2 the paint off a Subaru As far as I know, you're out of luck.

I think the closest one is down in manassas, which isn't that close at all. There is a car wash east on 50, but it will scratch and pummel your paint. I saw a Rolls Royce going through there one day

There's a touchless drive through at the gas station (Exxon/Mobil) at the corner of McLearan and Centreville Rd. Not quite Chantilly, but close enough.

It probably won't scratch or pummel the paint on non-subarus.

I've never had a car come clean using the touchless drive through. Although it is nice for blasting the underside of the car.

Maybe, but I bet the guys drying it with dirty towels at the end will.
