Brushless/Touchfree car wash in Irvine?

Tried searching, nothing showed up.

Anyone know of one? There was a Chevron one on Bristol but its under repair......

I would stay away from any car wash places like it was the plague. If you value your car, you would want to take the time to wash your own car; at least you know what you did to it.Brushless/Touchfree car wash sounds safe, but how safe?

Jamboree and Edinger has a self car wash. I generally bring my own supplies and just use their water.

How do they work. I mean it doesn't touch your car. It's just water. I doubt it hurts that car. Right?

And are you looking for a pro one. Or just like a gas station one?

I think that is the same guy who was doing my car at Irvine Spectrum back when I was working in the green light building. I think he has a 7 series or 6 series...

Went here today. Waited 30 min, then the machine broke down, had to back out of a very tight turn. Almost curbed my Hre's, tires took the hit. Close call.
