    I've washed my Model S several times now and I'm a little surprised that I didn't think of this before: Set the suspension to very high and jack mode before washing the car. You can clean in the wheel wells better, the bottom is easier to clean, and in general you don't have to stoop down quite as low. I just changed wheels last week, that's probably why I remembered setting the suspension and jack mode.

    set it to low to wash the roof first, then very high after you've done the roof

    hmm, interesting, the rain just washed my car. Had a co-worker just ask if I just waxed it?
    I washed it Friday before autocrossing all weekend in a dusty area, nice that it is somehow clean now :confused:
