Re: car park car wash


Sorry mate, but I don't trust these places, not because the way they wash cars, but because they squeeze these cars in such a way that paint damage will be the last thing you'd worry about and will be hoping that you don't end-up with a clean car that is full of dents from doors slamming against it.

I hate shopping centre car parks in general, let alone leaving my exy there to get washed emoticon

Re: car park car wash


I usually take my exy to one hand-wash place near where I live, but even with these guys, they caused damage to my exy twice already, one they paid for after a guy decided to sit on the cargo blind to wipe the rear window and the other time another guy knocked the fender mirror from its place, luckily for him, it didn't break, cause his face turned yellow when he saw me coming and the owner of that place already knew about the first damage.

Now when I turn up at that place, they only assign one senior guy to do the washing and drying of my exy and no one else is allowed to touch it, so I get sort of a royal service at this car wash after these two incidents emoticon

I haven't been there since December before going on holidays and didn't bother washing the car since I returned, so the other day I go there for a car wash and the owner comes out running saying "we thought you got angry at us and decided to leave us after what happened earlier" hahahahaha

I said, "nah mate, as long as you look after my exy while it is in your care, I will keep coming back" I never seen my exy so clean before after they'd finished and I was going off-road, so I didn't enjoy seeing it clean for long. hehehehehe emoticon emoticon emoticon

Dunno mate to be honest, as the car is hidden from view while it's being washed, I see steam come out from the washing bay, but it could the steam coming from the guys washing it as they get nervous everytime I come. hahahaha emoticon

Jalal, if you took it there just before going to Newnes, you should've gone back there after Newnes last Monday to complain they didn't do such a good job (just to see the looks on their faces)!
