just wondering, have you guys tried bringing your 2006 civics in a machine car wash?

well, Ive already gone twice (wash + wax). And :banghead: Ive learned (from experience) that having it waxxed with a machine was the most wrongest idea.

2006 civic = a lot of plastic outside
Wax + Plastic = white stuff (wax residue)

:( now i have to look for something to remove those stuf. Any ideas?

Thanks Much. :hail:

get yourself a microfiber towel. walmart/kmart/etc will have them in their automotive section. They feel really odd, but they are safe for paint. Buff the areas that have the residue, and it'll be all good.

You got your door ripped off?!?!..lmao! :hail: Damn, Im so glad ive never thought of using a car wash machine, because I was told before that most can scratch up your car, so I never planned on going to one ever. :aaa:

Don't ask me how but yeah the door was bent all to hell and back on my 1980 toyota. I barely opened the door for some reason I forgot when the machine took it. I just had to go to the junk yard and buy another door for it. This happened over 10 years ago. I'm a little smarter now!

I NEVER do automated car washes with brushes due to the potential for swirl marks, scratches, etc. I have, however, gone through touchless car washes (e.g. Mobil gas) with no problem. During the winters I typically take my cars to an indoor hand wash facility who does a bang up job for only $12 (rinse, wash, dry, vacuum interior, clean windows - inside and out, clean rims, and dress up tires).

you should only wash your car by hand. **** the automatic car washes, they're a waste of time and money. if you're into your car, you'll clean it yourself.

ide say either do it by hand or pay a guy who dose them by hand and dose a good job on them. i got a kid on my block who dose both my parents cars for 20 bucks and dose a wax every other wash. automated is for soccer moms.
