Clean air in Florida

I can't believe how clean the air is in Florida. Home in Bangkok I wash our cars every 3 days. Here I can go ten days between washes. And, these American auto washes take only a few minutes. In Bangkok it takes about 30 minues (for a hand wash).

Your crazy corkscrew taken your SL to an automatic car wash, at least take it to a brushless one. I'm not so brave, I don't trust those things. Would only take my SUV's to those car washes.

My worry would be a works van or similar had been through prior that little bits of mud and dirt would be stuck to the brushes. Thus scratching your car every time it spins and cleans.

May be wrong mind and that auto wash looks a lot cleaner than the average BP one in my area.
