self wash in Bay area?

Hello.
It's been about a month since I've driven my 330i and think I need to wash my car.

Does anyone know if there's self-wash place that I can buy just water? I have car shampoo and other stuff, so I just need a place to wash the car and water!

I have driven non-BMW for 6 years and honestly haven't washed my car except at the automatic machine washers.

Thanks~!

funny - I posted this exact same question today on bimmerfest... In san francisco the only place I know of that you can wash your own car is at 10th and harrison... but unfortunately, the water hose is the same for "pure water", soapy water, and "wax finish"... so it's impossible to get just clean water to come out of the hose... I had so many spots on my car after leaving there, I had to come home and hand wash my car in the street...

Thanks for the info, Steply. That's too bad you had to clean it again.

I think I saw one in the east bay and wanted to see if there's one closer to where I live.
What I saw while I was riding the bus is one on San Pablo and Dwight in Berkeley.

There is also one on Telegraph heading south from Berkeley campus but unfortunately I don't remember the cross street right now. Although I'm pretty sure the hose situation is the same as the one Steply encountered in SF.

I don't know of any in the bay area that is just a hose with water. All the ones I have seen are the stalls where you insert some cash and you select between engine, tire, soap and rinse.
