    Biggest scam ever. Unless you're going through one on a daily basis what is the point of these things other than maybe the benefit of the undercarriage wash...?



    That is all.

    How much does it cost to make one?
    There is one here locally that I know that is touchless, and I prefer going to it over the other ones because I feel like the traditional carwash place with the old brushes that spin really fast damages the car/paint, or at least it looks capable of scratching it.

    Oh I do not own the washes. I own a factory/lab that manufactures car wash/detailing chemicals. Touchless washes/ tunnel washes in good locations make a killing. Our avg touchless /tunnel wash customer uses $20-$50,000/year in chemicals per location

    Uh...they absolutely damage your paint. There is no such thing as a paint safe automatic brush car wash. They don't exist.
