Hand wash, but in the winter months I go through the TOUCH FREE at Mobil. No brushes..or anything touches your car. Soap just gets sprayed on and sprayed off...it does a good job of removing salt...snow
I took mine through one the week I bought it a the fucker knocked my side skirt right off. they paid for it and painted it and gave me free washed for life but i'll be damned if i ever take my celi back to that place. its only been hand washed since then
You sunsabatches that get no cold weather got it made in the shade! If I don't go to a car wash, there's good chance my car won't get washed from November thru March in a particularly cold year!
Yah, bummer for you. Living in AZ surely helps; the cold weather is starting up in the Northeast. Here's a suggestion; this is what I used to do when I lived in an apartment and didn't have access to my own hose. Fill a bucket or 2-5 gallon lidded container with warm water, then put it in the car and take it along to a MANUAL car wash (the kind with the hand-held sprayers). Then HAND WASH the car using the warm water and gentle soap. Only use the car wash wand to do the rinse. Not a bad compromise.
300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.
mine goes throough the car wash and 5 minutes later it looks like it came out the showroom...i must admit i like doing it by hand but winter is around the corner and in nj it can gete down to the teens and even below that so it will def be in thhe car wash than!
