When it gets that cold The Auto Carwashes shut down. What happens back east and in colder regions?[/QUOTE]

They all keep running with no problems. Although, I do recall one brushless one in Chicago during really cold weather where the spray had built up ice on the walls about 4 inches think, and the floor had even more, with just deep ruts where the tires went. That was fun getting out of!

I have been running mine through the touchless wash one or two times a month on the basic wash for a year and a half. No issues but it does get pretty noisy during the high pressure rinces. I don't have any issues with the top other than scratches from tree branches.

i tried this once. Decided being inside a drum wasn't a fun experience.

I go to a local hand wash place. Nothing with auto brushes. The one near me also has a track that pulls the vehicles through, which I like. It's piece of mind that no one is burning my clutch. As for the 'wind tunnel' - Jeep03 is right; it's like being in a drum so I politely ask them to shut it down when I pass through. So yes, I've gone through dryers in the past. No issues at all, other than the horrendous noise.

I take mine to a car wash all the time. Usually the day after wheeling. No problems or leaks.

I don't worry about scratches though. I have countless scratches from wheeling. I wouldn't notice if I got any from the car wash. Can't be as deep as the tree branches.
