How about car wash etiquette?

I wanted to stab this bitch last night. Waited until time was out, then started rinsing her car off with the mist that comes out of the wand so it doesn't freeze up. Finally finished that, then proceeded to dry her car off in the bay.

I can't get too mad about that, I dry mine off in the summer in the bay because black water spots so freakin quick. I try and hurry though. Wish it was warm enough to actually wash ours as the salt is thick on them now and it's driving me nuts. Last time I tried to wash them below freezing the doors froze shut.

Same, maybe twice. I also cant stand when people wash off mud and leave giant clumps all over the bay, I understand there will be some on the ground but at least spray the majority into the drain. takes only a few seconds on high pressure wash.

I was looking for an in door wash bay by me yesterday. Closest one is 30 miles away. I would love to be able to get the salt off. They seem to be super popular in Canada. I saw a picture from the golf site with one that had a ton of bays.

Wish I had a heated garage with a floor drain. Oh well I'm just glad the cobalt is out of the snow on the charger.

You should have a birthday party for it. That's what I did when my Tahoe got to 100K. My wife made a cake. I think I must be nuts. Also see from the picture that this is right around the time the dash began to die. I had to get new servo motors from amazon.

i'm thinking of putting together a video like facebook does with sappy music reminiscing of all the times we've had together. 4 times around the Earth with my butt in that seat groove is a long time.
