im just not sure you understand what a touchless car wash is? nothing touches it but water and soap. i would never take my trucks through any wash that has brushes, youre right it causes alot of damage. i had a hand in painting both my trucks so i take care of my paint. i challange anyone to find any scratches on either of them from a touchless car wash. im just saying, for those of us that dont live in california, car washes sometimes are the only option in the dead of winter to get the road salt off your rig. touchless washes are safe for your vehicle.

yeah i know what you mean, i see it alot around here too except with rust. its sad to see a 5 year old truck rusted to hell, you just know a hose has never been used on it. thats why i make it point to hit up a touchless wash with an underbody spray every so often in the winter to get the salt off my paint and frame. if the weather is above freezing ill wash it by hand at a quarter wash. thanks for the compliment BTW.
