I've used a couple of touchless car washes & not had any problem. They don't clean as well as a handwash, but it's a lot better than not doing it at all.
If anyone can get away with it you can. I personally always handwash but if you're going to go to a car wash... white is the best color to have. I used to own a body shop and can tell you from experiance white is the most forgiving color when it comes to hiding fine scratches. And I think your trim would be safe.I am curious to see if anyone has run theirs through a car wash place as of yet. I know it is better to do it at home and not risk someone else doing it, but sometimes I am just way to busy.
Especially planning a wedding with the Mrs.
Has anyone had problems with the SIRIUS antenna or any other problems with the brushes or has everyone gone touchless or any other tips??
I like everything said in this post except I'm afraid I have to disagree with my Nitro brother here on the don't wax part. As an ex-body shop owner I can tell you body shops don't like wax because a heavily waxed car can present a "fish eye" problem (tiny indented circles) in a paint repair if all the wax doesn't get fully removed.the only way i can wash my nitro is in a car wash ive only use the brush type once by mistake but i had no problems i usally use touch less wash and i still havent had any problems. what i use to do is run the truck through the touch less wash the take it over to the manully wash and wash and rinse it there and chammed it off. when ever u wash the car by hand is to use a new small sponge and use a new one ever time if it ever hits the ground throw it out as it will pick up little stones and scratch the clear coat. its not nessasary to wax the nitro because off the paint it has a clear coat covering so the only thing is that wax will build up and wont look to good after a while. a polish is a option after a year or so of driving
with a high speed polisher but this should be done buy a professinal as u can heat up the clear and make a heck of a mess
