dirt -__-

one of the many disadvantages of having an AW m3 is dust, dirt...the works..

upon killing time while awaiting the car over the later stages of summer I read many people post that a machine-car wash is bad...very bad...

so for those of you in the NYC/tri-state area, any suggestions on a good place to get the car cleaned...worst case, ill have to use a hose my building has downstairs...may piss of the super but eh

First I would talk to the super and see if he'll let you do that as a favor twice a month. If no dice, I recommend places like Touchless Car Washes where brushes don't touch the car and you can pick an option with minimal chemicals in it (car wash chemicals bad for car in general). Better yet, these places have quarter self wash options and you simply bring your own chemicals.
