GVA: Anyone else finally wash their car?

Spent 3 hours washing and detailing my car, god I can't even remember the last time we had a sunny day or the last time I washed my car. I think it was in early September, lol. Did anyone else wash their car today? The weather looks clear but cold for the next few days.

Hahahah I was eyeballing a local car wash on the weekend deciding whether or not to go in. Silver hides the dirt well until you get closer.

Got up early and washed mine about 2 weeks ago and then it started raining........

Got it into the garage in time and spent the rest of the day doing a full clay bar/Klasse/Wax job..........and then slapped on the snow tires.

All ready for the winter

Feels good driving around a nice, clean car after been dirty for soooo long but I'm sure the rain will return by the weekend and the next time I'll wash my car will be sometime in April, lol.

My AW is so diirrrrttty right now it's ridiculous.

Looking to wash on Saturday before I head down to see the inlaws in Brantford. Do I wash before the 2hr highway drive, or after, when I arrive in Brantfors??? It'll be the first time they're seeing it so I want it looking good. Decisions Decisions.

Who has the best touchless? What's the safest softcloth?

I've been going to Petro Can and Sunoco Touchless; but have been disappointed in recent times.

just a heads up...

dont bother taking ur cars to those touchless systems...

took my rdx to the esso touchless on 41st yesterday and it didnt do anything. drove out and there was still sooo much dirt on the truck. waste of $11. rather pay someone like $25-30 to do a handwash that actually works.
