Drive-in, do-it-yourself carwish ?

Do you think that the soap in my local covered, stall-type car wash will hurt the finish on my tt?

I can't wash it in my driveway because it is so sunny/hot here these days it will water spot before I can towel dry.

Question Quality

Kistler
Isn't it true that, the water that used at car wash in AZ. contains hi-level of minerals?
Why not do it either later in the afternoon or earllier in the morning before it heats up~?
You could also check into the waterless cleaner sold at W-Mart. I've not used it yet but, let all of us know if you try it and, how well it works..(Here's your chance to be a LEADER~)
ciao

It works

I use one of the truck stalls at the local do it yourself wash. I soap it down lightly, rinse it, and then use the spot-free rinse. No water spots. Nice thing is that the wash is right on my route home from many of my trips,

You gota be kidding?

Kistler

During my last trip there, I recalled using a local car wash and, before the vehicle was blown dry it had numerous white specks on it. I asked the 'operator' of the car wash about it and was informed that, the water source was from deep below the surface and, as a result, contained a very heavy concentration of alkaline mineral. Could this be the reason for the bitter taste?
