Other than the aches and pains, absolutely. It SHINES.so much satisfaction
I have a pressure washer because our HOA is a pain about keeping the sidewalks looking nice, so I just got a foam cannon attachment for it. It makes washing the car SO much easier and faster.
Apply shampoo BEFORE pulling into the car wash, but after putting on your swim goggles.Easy. Top down.
The car (including the soft top) is designed to take the beating, but it still won?t do any good to either the fabric nor the paint so.
That is factually wrong. I am surprised that you don't know that, or are falling for this urban legend. There is only very few general rules that apply, but in the end local communal, regional or state governments can have specific rules that actually go as far as outright banning it. What applies to whereever you live, nfi. But this is the facts by law:In Germany it's generally illegal to wash your car outside of dedicated washing places for environmental reasons,
And realistically, all of that basically amounts to using a place built for that. I never said it has to be a commercial washing place. If you want, you can build your own driveway to fulfill the necessary specs.You must not allow contaminated water (cleaning chemicals as well as operating fluids) to get into the groundwater. Which means you either filter the water you use (even if it is clear water), or make sure to just clean the outside surfaces that won't contain any operating fluids, if in the end the water you use ends up in the ground. Or you make sure to do it on a sealed surface where the water ends up in a sewer system, so it is going to a water treatment facility.
