5 Corners Car Wash - Any good?

I am real intrigued with this place...they are a true hand wash.

From what I see on their website, looks very promising. Looks to be sheepskin mitts they use...http://www.fivecornerscarwash.com/contact.html

why not wash your car yourself? it'll save you money and you'll know it was done correct. I don't care how many fancy cars they post, I'm sure they rush things which just leads to swirls and all sorts of fun stuff....

Bro...I've probably washed my car hundreds of times already since I've got it - and it gets old QUICK. If I really wanted to wash it I wouldn't have made this thread.

5 corners is OK but UltraSonic on jericho about 5 mins away is WAY better.

5 Corners is great! I don't usually go to car washes... but he is my Boy, and a fellow e92 owner! Support him!

I have spoke in detail with him about how he strives to provide the highest quality car wash around, and is legit! They go over the car twice with the wash mits, by hand. They also take atleast another 10mins on your car after it comes out!~

Best Car Wash

First off, i live in Bellerose in the neighborhood right behind Ultra Sonic car wash. I tried them 2 times now because i didnt want to drive to five corners. Not only did Ultra sonic take close to 25 mins to get my car into the tunnel with only 4 cars infront of me. I was there for over an hour and my car looked like crap. I believe their wash scratched my hood and they pretty much told me to screw off. so i then went to five corners the following week told them about my experience there and they buffed out my scratch for nothing. They are a true hand wash, great customer service, and im pretty sure they were the first ones to be a hand wash. And most importantly my car comes out mint every time.
