Touchless car wash most of the time don't do well on sunny days.. as the weather gets hot and dirt get baked on..

I recommend visit Sensha-Ya a board sponsor instead.

its pretty good.. not as long as it seems..

your car rolls through it while those brushes spin, so your car never stops moving... under 1min.. 30secs I think for the wash process... you can pick the different levels of wash from $5-$15 iirc...
Used to go there when I worked around the area... not bad... they open pretty late also...

There's an esso on Fraser and marine drive with a touch less car wash.
You go inside the gas station to pay for the code then drive up to the wash station. Punch in the code and follow the instructions

the terminal one doesn't wash a part on your trunk, every single time. around the license plate area. probably a limitation of its design, but that's a deal breaker for me. i expect a car was to wash the entire car.

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

the best one is the Husky located at Marine and 70th, right across the denny's. Its around 12-14 dollars for the top wash, and they use rain-x as well.
This is the address, and its 24 hours too.

750 West 70th Avenue, Vancouver, BC

In burnaby, hastings(and fell i think) right by burnaby north secondary, there's a car wash place. on the very left theres a laser wash touchless machine. $10 for basic wash.
was kinda sketchy but gf wanted to go through a wash so i did it.
gotta admit, did an AMAZING job. got rid of a LOT of dirt. even a few bird spots.

touchless and brushless

This is my "go-to" as of right now, in terms of touchless/24hr places. It's actually pretty thorough for a touchless system. But obviously for more caked on dirt or bird droppings, it won't get all of it off.

My second choice is the Esso on SE Marine as someone mentioned. I was reluctant to go back here because I had a bad experience once. But I gave it a go just a few weeks ago and it's all good.
