    I've been way too lazy to do this so far this winter. The days I get time to take it to a touchless carwash it seems the wash isn't working or it's way too cold like today.

    Great article.

    Great article.
    You definitely don't want to go when it's cold like this, but if you're headed into a garage (hopefully heated) after the wash, I find anything over 20-25 degrees is fine. You can dry all the jambs, etc. after the wash in the garage so nothing freezes and get stuck. Should be warming up by the weekend so get on it!

    Can this be added to your washer fluid tank to make ultra powerful dirt destroying washer fluid?

    Never tried it so can't really comment. Feel free to experiment and report your findings though

    I can add it to the 303 order we're planning. Just let me know when you're ready.

    Great write-up!

    My car is need of a wash soon. Fortunately, I have not used my car too much during the winter, but the little time I have managed to get salt sprays on the side of my car.

    Unfortunately, I cannot do the touchless as my car is too low for most touchless places, so it may look like I need to change buckets often. I used to go to the manual places (the one with the high pressure hose), but there doesn't seem to be any places close by where I live now (anyone know of some decent places near Wood Dale, please let me know).

    I did have a question... now, I have approximately 4 coats of Z5 on the car as well as Meguair's tech Wax and a couple of doses of Meguiar's spray quick wax on top of it all for good measure before winter came along. How well protected is my paint? Since I basically have not washed my car since mid November and the car has been exposed to some of the elements (have not driven through a snow storm, just after one).
