Oh, and my car takes minutes to wash. At least for mine it has little to do with being lazy besides that I have to carry everything down three floors because I live in an apartment complex.
And if you have chips on your hood already this either means your car is getting special abuse or there's a high chance you tailgate. If they are tiny little chips on the front half of the hood for ht emost part, I'd guess on tailgating. I have them too but I plan to get a new hood because of two dents it has.
Its monsoon season so for the next month or so if I wash my car the next day its all full of dust and water spots. I will wash it as soon as the weather stops being gay. I rather take it to the car wash its only down the street from me and they do a good job with interiors.
