    I wouldnt take that, my brother took his car through a car wash and it ripped spoiler off (there were no signs saying no spoilers) they wouldnt do anything about it so he filled his tank up with petrol and drove off, police phoned him later on that day and told him to go pay for the petrol, he explained what happened at the garage and the garage ended up paying out in full. Not that i condone stealing petrol, but he managed to get them to pay out.

    Also why use those car washes, they scratch your car very badly!

    A friend of mine had a blonde moment and took her car through a car wash, she hadn't had the car long, and forgot it was a soft-top!

    She said she had never been so scared in her life as she was hanging onto the roof to stop it being whipped off pmsl

    Bad news about your car though, our one near here has a big sign saying no spoilers...

    You will find that most garages will have a liability sign somewhere regarding cars being damaged in the car wash. They are a shit idea at the best of times.

    Theres a disused (eyesore) garage at the other end of town, where a group of Polish guys have started a handwashing car service. For a fiver you get it washed and chamoised (sp) dry, but for a mere £15, they give it a polish, hoover, do all the door shuts, glass etc. I might be paying them a visit this week as my car hasn't been washed for about 3 months and its full of damn pine needles stuck in the carpet

    Only reason i used it was because of the frost, i used some stuff to stop it freezing, except it ran down the doors and left marks.

    The manager will be phoning me tomorrow when he is in. BP used to have a thing that said "care wash" where it was guaranteed not to cause damage. either way, il get it back some how.
    Goodbye
