Agreed - touchless wash only and only the kind you pull into yourself. I don't want the matted dirt on those brushes ground into my paint. If there's paint damage to be done, I wanna do it myself!I refuse to use automated car washes. I just won't do it. I manually use a wand if I go to a commercial wash, or I do it at home.
If they INSIST on those washes, at least do what Gregj suggests - then it can't move on its own. There, that was a simple solution!
And I will NEVER EVER EVER use a wash that TOUCHES my vehicle with anything other than water.
