I just received my car and I'm wondering if I can take it to a regular car wash. Has anyone done this and do I need to put it on a certain mode or anything?
My car is fully clear wrapped. I find that touchless high pressure wash does a good job and do this regularly. Haven't noticed any issues with the windshield either.
I do the touchless automated car washes as well, however I've noticed that they leave a film of residue, whether it is from road grime or the actual car wash detergents. I am very hesitant to rub anything against the paint but now there are places where that residue buildup is rather obvious and annoying against the blue paint. Considering getting a spray on, wipe off touch up wax and hope that it will lubricate any particulates left after the wash and prevent them from leaving swirl marks.
Or find a freaking professional detailer and let them have at it.
I would recommend the two bucket hand wash method, but to answer your question no you don't need to do anything.... Your driving a tank.... Can't hurt it.
