gotta admit, did an AMAZING job. got rid of a LOT of dirt. even a few bird spots.

touchless and brushless
just updating: this britewash location no longer has DIY wash bays because they are about to be torn down to make space for a new tim hortons, according to the development signboard out front.

however, the automated carwash in the back is still in operation. but is not touchless and it uses a track system.

Don't go to the terminal one. Price is good but it never cleans the rear license plate area and it left me some swirl marks on my quarter panel. There are a few hand wash near metro town bby area that does a decent job.

i feel like wash world @ no 4 and steveston is decent. touchless and 24/7

it also doesnt wash near the interoir/inside handle part on your side mirrors.

but then again, on a price/ value perspective, i like the terminal one. all the others are $10+ starting, while this one is $8

Posted in the Auto section, but this seems like a more appropriate thread.

I remember someone mentioning there's a place in Vancouver/Richmond that cleans the underside of the car as well (from salt and stuff during winter).

I can't find the post anymore and was wondering if someone can point me to some places.

North Shore Auto Wash

used to be easywash, before they changed hands due to some sort of financial/business issues.

it used to be not bad. if the car wasn't clean, you get a free wash until it is. but now i'm reading reviews with the new operators being stingy on soap so i'm not sure what your end result will be.

I also tried this place and don't recommend it. Didn't clean well and the drying process sucks. My car was still dripping wet. Best is to wash your own car.
