    Video: Cayman at the car wash

    Video of my car going through the car wash after a nice day drive on the Apache Trail. The camera is a Contour+.

    Re: Video: Cayman at the car wash



    Nice, better than all the typical track videos that are posted!

    Anyone else squirm when those floor mops went on the hood?

    Thanks for sharing and nice video production skills! Can't wait to see the track videos you'll create.

    No, wake up, this can only be a bad dream. Please, wake up now. This can not really be happening can it? OMG, wake up, please. Nooooooo. Stop it.

    Don't put those brushes on my car that just came off that pick up truck. No. Stop. I have to wake up. Now, please wake up. OMG, it is still happening.

    Stop, please stop. I have to wake up.

    OK, I am awake. I was watching my nightmare in the middle of the day. It's not my car; its just where I left it. OK, everything is going to be just fine. Take a deep breath.

    I squirmed at the car wash entrance. I hate scratches and swirls and those things usually kill your paint. Cool video though.. Thanks.

    I knew what the reaction from the peanut gallery was going to be!

    NoOneAtHome is a new member and he probably thinks we're all insane!!

    Don't take this as an insult NoOneAtHome, we're just having some fun. It's good to see someone treat his car like a normal car!

    The "floor mops" are not actually mops and they are rinsed in constantly recycling water before each car. I have taken my SRT-4, STI, this cayman and never ever had any scratches dings, or swirls.

    Re: Video: Cayman at the car wash

    For many folks this car is special to them and will spend the time needed to keep the finish of the car as pristine as possible. Others are not as hung up about these issues and will spend their free time on other things more important to them.

    Check out the detailing section in the forum. I've seen mirror finishes at car events that will make your jaw drop by folks who take a lot of pride if getting their cars to that level of perfection. There is a whole detailing industry built around people like this.

    Like all hobbies, there are extremes on both ends. I would say that most of us would avoid putting our Caymans into an automated car wash due to the potential for damage. Note that I said potential damage.

    You've found a good shop and are happy with what they're doing so no problems there and more power to you!

    We're just having some fun banter at someone putting their Cayman into a car wash. Images of rotating brushes and grit filled recycled water hitting the clearcoat float across our brains.

    Oh heck* no!

    My Cayman will never go through a car wash.
