Best Carwash in 626 Area

Hi I will be visiting some family in the Pasadena area (626 area code) for a month, and was wondering which car washes you would recommend. Prefer something that will be better for the car. Thanks

I wouldn't recomend you to go to any carwash if you like your car. Best way is to do it yourself ofcourse. I'm sure your family here have supplies for a good wash.
But if you must have someone do it for you, I would have some who knows what he is doing do it, but its a lil pricey, but check out this site for some great places;

Thanks for the help sehrgut. I might look into a detail then. So no recommendations for a regular car wash?

I say the best carwash is to do it yourself.
