Sorry to interrupt regularly scheduled programming Ok I got a real question....lol


Seriously though, car washes....I usually don't like them, I've heard all the stories about scratches and all that. I did use them with the 07 and it wasn't too bad, but still.

The plan is to keep the 13 as nice as possible though so Ill be handwashing it when I can, but the winter as we all know is brutal and I'm not about to be out there washing me car when its 20 degrees out.

Any good car washes out there that wont mess my car up or is it not really anything to worry about?

There is one by my work on of those automatic drive in jobs that just shoots a stream if water all over the car, touchless. It did an OK job on the 07. Mich do in a pinch for winter but then again you want to be extra diligent with washing in the winter right because of salt.

I like touchless ones with a dryer. They do a good enough job not to freeze your Ass off.

Otherwise pull it in the garage and wash it.

Touch less ones are great for keeping a clean car clean. Not so much for getting a dirty car clean.

In the winter I love them though, for the fact most have the under carriage spray.

So I suppose find a decent touchless and give it a good wash and wax right before it starts getting really cold.

Nope. Even if it was it'd still be worth the wait. You're just too impatient

News flash the world doesn't revolve around me, or you or any other lone person on this planet. He had baby mama court drama to deal with, and he did it for free.

Also he took his time and did it right the first time, instead of destroying my things like your guy did for you
