Touchless washes are good because they don't cause any swirling/scratches or damage, but the problem is they use strong chemicals that will end up stripping any protection you do have on the paint over time. Pick up a CR spotless system, and just give your car a rinse when you don't have time to wash it, but with it washing is so easy that it will probably take you 30 minutes at most.

ONR is your friend, easiest way to wash your car, all you need is a bucket full of water. No hose or anything.

The best deal is actually the one from costco, since it's the larger size and comes with free shipping, extra resin refills, and a hose. But it's still pricey. Do you have a garage? With ONR you can wash your car right in your garage. Use a bucket of hot water and you don't really get cold. A heater helps but it's not necessary.

thanx for the idea of ONR. but sadly no garage, just a driveway. idk how i'll wash the car in the winter so thats the main reason why i'm looking for a good carwash. maybe i can try the ONR thing till the weather hits consistent 40s and it gets too cold for me

Get a pair of those long ass rubber gloves and man up. Shoot me a PM if you have any questions about using ONR or would like some tips.
