Touchless carwash around Eastside?

Got my Monaco Blue 335i about a week and half ago. Boy does it show a lot more dirt than my silver car before.

Where is a good touchless car wash place on the Eastside? (for those times I am too lazy to do it myself or too cold)

Also how soon should I get a detail? Since this color shows dirt easily, I plan to to wash it very frequently (and no matter how careful you try, washing always introduces microscopic scratches even if you use cotton or microfiber).

Am I missing something here? I thought the touchless car washes use a lot of harsh chemicals that I would be afraid to let touch my car. I've never tried one, so maybe I'm wrong.

I've heard both good and bad things about these car washes, but that first one that was recommended looks like a detailer not a touch less car wash.

True..... I am not that found of the touchless washes and Genesis will wash & dry your car as fast as touchless wash..... Only difference is that end results are much better when it is done by an actual detailer.

I think so too. I did it for the first time after my car was covered in aphid sh1t and it works so well in dissolving everything that I'm sold. I wouldn't use it on a regular basis but will use it after long trips when my car is covered in bug splat.
