Yeah it has under body wash spray, pre soak, soaking, spot free rinse some have dryers at the end.
I seen one in California that has actual lasers and colored soap I want Queen City to get one of those.

I usually go to touch frees at Kangeroo's for the discount on gas for car wash purchase.

Part of the reason why I like Coin-op places is that it allows me the satisfaction of scrubbing my car myself and really getting everywhere, as opposed to driving through some quicky thing that sprays some soapy water and slaps your car with a couple of dangling cloths. Call me a control freak, but that sure doesn't make me feel like my car is getting cleaned...

Agreed. I'd also rather let the car air dry on the drive home rather than having someone attempt to dry it off with a rag that's probably dried other cars & might have dirt on it that would scratch the paint.

This is only really useful if you are in the north part of the county. If you drive up north on hwy 115, there are 3 different coin car washes between Huntersville and Davidson. One of them is pretty new. Plus there is a 4th one in Cornelius on Catawba Ave. These are all in nice areas so no need to worry about being robbed.

If you are uptown the closest coin operated car wash I can think of is on N. Tryon between Sugar Creek and Eastway.
