Metro Detroit car washes

I haven't taken the jeep to a car wash since I have owned it. I always did it by hand but the other night i got caught out in the snow which i was not happy about. Are there any really good car washes around? I was thinking of taking it to Mr. C's car wash. Any opinions/experiences would be great.

Do you have a garage? There are some no rinse car wash supplies that do a good job. Or if is your daily driver go for it. But if you have had paint correction done stay clear of the machine car wash.

As for tuning there is only really one qualified tuner and he comes from Jersey....

brian points good ideas. stay far away from "scratch-and-shines". Or if you need someone to do a full paint correction just let me know and I can help you out there, worked with Ferrari's all day and have done multiple corrections of our jeeps including my own. I use and incorporate products that well repel road contaminates more so less washing is needed. Sorry for bumping an old thread, just saw it now!

Supercars are designed to melt ice caps, kill the poor, poison the water table, destroy the ozone layer, decimate indigenous wildlife, recapture the Falkland Islands, and turn the entire third world into a huge, un-inhabitable desert. But, only after they've nicked all the oil.--Jeremy Clarkson
