This is all fine and dandy in the warmer climes, but up here where
the ground is covered in white and will stay that way till March
(or is it April or May, it's all beginning to look the same), my garden 
hose is a frozen coil on the shelf in the garage, and my cars 
are frosted with road salt.  That no touch car wash with the cotton 
towel drying is the least of the evils.

Interestingly, my dealer (Porshe/Audi) always drives any car in for 
service through a car wash (also no touch) but the local Jag/BMW/
Range Rover dealer has a wash booth in his service bay
