I'm sorry OP, but who the hell goes to Shine Auto Wash on Terminal? I went there once, and it left bird shit and dirt on my car, and scratches from the brushes that definitely weren't there before.

Relevant Thread Hijack:

RevScene peeps, if I could recommend a local car wash: Ultrashine Car Wash at Main and 2nd. I've been going there for a couple years, the guys are super friendly, full hand wash and vaccum and wipe down your interior as well.

All for $20 plus tax!

Every time I'm in there it's mainly luxury cars too. I even saw a RR Phantom in there getting detailed.

Check em out

Not touchless? Come on raj Aadmi

Yeah, the shell touchless on lougheed is fantastic... Only problem is 13 bucks for a car wash?

I would rather pay like $60 for a monthly pass...

FYI,... taken from their FB site: (I think it might def be worth checking out but when the heck is this gonna open for business?)




Speedwash will use a special scratch resistant foam to wash your car . This is the same material used at automobile manufacturers like Mercedes Benz , BMW, FORD etc . This material not only cleans the car but also buffs it giving it that new car finish . You'll never have to worry about scratches at speedwash .

These guys are great. Super nice, always remember me/my car and want to shoot the shit about cars. The interior is always simply immaculate when I leave. I'll be going to them for a good thorough spring detail when the time comes.

He wouldn't have went touchless because touchless washes can just never get the same amount of dirt.

If you're concerned about swirls in your paint, doesn't matter if you go to a hand wash place. They're going to swirl your paint all the same.

If you care that much, you'd just do it yourself..

^ I was going to say - his dad was extremely successful.

As for the quality of wash, it will be interesting to see whether this foam will truly avoid scratches.

For those praising hand-wash places, most places I have seen re-use buckets of water and dirty rags/mitts on all the cars coming through. They are absolutely inducing swirls.

If you truly want it done right I would suggest doing it yourself as the time & care it takes to conduct a proper wash is not something most volume car-washes can afford to do.

As much as we'd all rather wash our own cars, the reality of living in van is that 90% of us don't have a driveway to do that in.

in general have those auto carwashes at gas stations (touchless) been researched over a few year period to see what affect it would have on a cars paint?
