after the wash

anyone else hates that trail of water that keeps dribbling down the side mirrors after a car wash?

Mine only happens on the passenger side and ITS NEVER ENDING, no matter what I try - drive & dry, compressed air, praying, NOTHING WORKS.

im assuming its from the water building up behind the mirror as water is trapped back there during the wash thats why it seems never ending. i tried squeezing a towel back there and let it soak up for a bit

Hate those trails, especially owning a black car. But it doesn't bother me anymore~

Lol got used to it. Now i just wipe up under the door mirrors, slam the trunk shut a few times to get the water out from the plate, and wipe the water from the corner of the headlights.
Not that bad haha

Driving under a flock of birds is a deathtrap, you never make it out without getting hit.

Sometimes i just put a little kitchen towel so it absorbs a little bit of water.
