Has anyone ever posted a car wash video here yet?

If not, here's to being the first.

Actually this video wasn't planned. I have a dropcam (security/web cam) in my garage and got the idea of taking all the video recorded and turning it into a time lapse. Turned out that the software already had this feature built in. So here's 2 hours worth of washing an M3 compressed into 1 minute. Exciting, I know.

I didn't really even finish. Still have to wipe my wheels down, clean exhaust tips, and wipe the car down with some quick detailer.

I have no idea how a proper clean can take any less than 2 hours. I spend at least 45 minutes cleaning the wheels alone!

Cool vid OP!! No two buckets though?

Sweet vid! Nice garage! It took me over 4 hours to fully clean mine last weekend. Jacked the car up to clean the inner barrels on my rims.

Mothers r3 race rubber remover. It's pretty much magic in a bottle. Spray on, wait 30 seconds, wipe off.
