Use a basic soap and make sure to dry the car right away after rinsing. Stay away from wax or coatings.

Your car will look washed,and clean with some added micro-scratches. Depending on your paints condition you may want to go brushless carwashes instead.

Here are a couple of locations that I've used in the past:

Vancouver

Does anyone have a price list for Spades Auto Spa? Unable to find any information or reviews on this shop. Do they also sell products?

does anyone know of a decent touchless carwash that has bothered to plow their lot? i tried to use auto x press but they did zero snow removal and even though the wash bays are clear, everything else is a skating rink

Petro Canada has a promo where they have 5 "SuperWash" car washes on sale for $50. They regularly go for $60. If you register the card online, then you'll get an additional free wash, so it'll be 6 "SuperWash" for $50.
