Car Wash Sites?

Hi Guys,

I know most here will be accustomed to and in favor of the old hand wash, which of course is in a league of its own, but my question for you is:

Do you use any Wash facilities, be it self serve, automatics etc?

Which ones?
Any good or bad experiences at any of them?

Thanks in advance!

I am living in Coquitlam & working in Surrey.

$8 sounds pretty reasonable, I assume that is on the self serve?
