I am picking up my new RS 2.5 today, the grey car seen here:

...and want to take it thru the wash. Is it safe, to go through one of these $7 - $10 automatic car washes (not one of the old-school, far more harsh, bristly washes for $3, but the new style w/ the large strips of cloth, wax, hot air drying, etc.)??

Don't want to be too harsh.

What about when I hand-wash. You guys just use a wax on it, afterwards? How frequent w/ the wax? (I used to have a Neon which did not want/need waxing due to a sealant coat that was applied as a dealer option--you used this sealant cleaning solution occasionally instead.)

Thanks.

I've used those brushless washes many times with no problems. But handwashing is going to give you a better wash, that's for sure. Oh, and are you having them remove the dealership logo thing from the trunk of your car?
