I'd rather wash my car myself, but sometimes don't have the time. I just purchased a new vehicle and would like to stay away from car washes that may be too abrasive over time. Does anyone know if there are any "brushless" car washes here in San Antonio.. preferrably near Alamo Ranch over by 1604/Culebra?

I'd also like to stay away from those automated "laser" car washes that use high-pressure water nozzles.

Back in NY, I used to wash my car at a brushless wash where your car would get pulled through and two guys with mits would wash/rinse/wash/rinse your vehicle. The water and soap were applied by the machines.

On those, You would need to ask ahead of time if the clothes they use are microfiber because you may get swirl marks. I had two vehicles Minged and they recommend laser wash and spray wax dry with a microfiber towel. Has worked ever since and I don't have swirl marks.
