I’ve only got one auto car wash close by so wandered if anyone else finds the rollers don’t reach deeper recesses on the rear of the HS? I end up having to clean out the crease under the spoiler and top quarter of back window. Also under bumper and number plate area.
I know, first world issue…….

I gave up on those car wash machines after I found they scratched the windows. Shame as they are a nice cheap way to keep the car clean.

Amateur detailer here.

I have noticed the keeping the backside of the EHS clean is very troublesome....
2 days and it's already dirty.

Just give it a thick wax coat after washing it. And rinse the car off by hand at the carwash. Don't use the big ol' scratching machines!

always wash the car by hand, sometimes if its really dirty I will use the local jet wash .. carefully..
can't agree more on plenty of wax.

A clay bar is a useful thing. Leaves your paint smooth AF, BUT like all things...it should only be used when needed. I only clay my car once/1-2 years, or if really necessary, I know that a clay bar is and will always be an abrasive.

One rule is always, if the piece of clay touches the floor or clothing. Throw it away!
