Where do y'all wash your cars?

Near the Beverly Hills area?

As you can see from my vid, I like washing my own car, but now I am moving to an apartment complex that obviously wont allow u to wash your own car...

So my question is, is there a place where you can go to wash and wax your own car? I know they have these type of places in florida but wasn't sure around LA.

And where are the good places that have the least abrasive car washes for the times when you don't have time to do it yourself?

My advice, find a car wash where you put in quarters and use your own soap, bucket, and washing mits. Also use a micro-fiber shammy. The only thing you're really paying for is the high pressure washer but to me it's worth not having all those mofo's put swirl marks on my car at the hand wash. But then again, I have the worst color to take care of.

I went to Century West handwash. It seemed good, until they started spraying my car down with an unidentified bottle of liquid. When I asked what it was, he said it was windex. Too bad he wiped more than just the windows.
