    I have this issue with my Raptor, I only spray wash in the winter when it get's really dirty and hand wash if the weather is nice.

    Why would anyone want to run their car through a car wash? CA may have "cleaner" car washes than the NE, but the thought of those dirty brushes and harsh chemicals attacking my paint gives me the shivers. You pay enough for your car why not treat it like it cost you $30K? In the Camaro's case double that. IMO

    ocramidajzj, because then you can get those really fun swirls in the paint that catch the sunlight so beautifully ;/

    So having your black car washed outside, in the full sun, in Southern California, costs $25. Even in March, the surface temp on this car, sitting where that one is sitting, is probably north of 140 degrees. And then they hit it with 70 degree water. Wonderful.

    As an enthusiast, washing my car is one of my favorite "escapes". Nothing like a good 4 hour wash and wax on a Saturday morning.

    zimtheinvader: Yeah, love those swirls on black paint. Sooooo Purrrty.
    Pakohotdogs: Couldn't agree with you more. I sometimes wonder how "enthusiastic" Edmunds staffare about the cars they have on loan/buy. I know it's not their car but cmon, If I had a job like that I'd be treating the car like my own. No doubt manufacturers like it when their cars are well-treated. Good PR I would think.

    $10.99 early bird hand washed. What an excellent deal!

    Cjsg35; too bad for your uncle, love mine, no regrets, no remorse. I have an affinity for Corvettes, however I feel Chevy has gone too far on European stylying on the Vette for my taste. One day I hope to own a vintage Vette, but for now I'll enjoy my Panther.
