Absolutely marvelous...
You or someone else needs to teach me how to wash a car like that, when I do it, it always comes out dirty, so I pay a good 8 bucks for a mechanical/hand washed job each week.

If i go to a carwash i use
Pre soak, REALLY well
Highpressure Soap
Foam brush (used it tonight, dont normally though)
High Pressure rinse
Clear Coat protectant
Final Rinse
Then its 13 kms of 75-90 mph on the way back home down the highway..
Got home..went over the car with a towell so it was perfectly dry..then instant detailed it..while the tire shine did its thing
