BMW of Seattle car wash

How is BMW of Seattle's automated car wash? I bought my M3 from them and had heard it was ok?

When my car goes in..... there are "No Wash" notes all over the place....

If you do not want swirl marks all over your car, I suggest you do the same.

A dealer "courtesy" car wash is what it is.... judging from the paint of their loaner cars (which probably gets washed there all the time) I would stay away from it.

Damn that's unfortunate. I live in a condo with not real means to wash my own car.

BMW Northwest will do a hand wash if you request it. Of the 3 I had done there, 2 were acceptable.

BMW Seattle will do a hand wash if you're willing to pay for a detail. Otherwise it's drive-thru. I highly suggest you specify no wash.




For those that are in/around Fife, the new car wash near the Emerald Queen is pretty impressive. I wash my MDX there. $8 covers it. There are no upgrades. You get the full meal deal for $8. It has a machine that applies tire shine at the very end as well. Once you pull out, there's a full row of vacuums that are free to those who have paid for a wash.

Check out park place auto salon here in Bellevue, $30 gets you a full hand wash, undercarriage rinse, window cleaning, vacuum, and interior wipe down

Even on a small job like an oil change?
