Clearwater car wash in south yarra. 308 punt road. I never had a bad experience (scratches, not washed properly) with them.

If you have to take it to a car wash, just make sure that they don't apply any soap to your soft top.

You should only use the BMW approved soft top wash if needed.

In the entire 3 years I owned my 135i vert , I only rinsed the soft top with plain water then dried off.

I used to use the "laser wash" on Burwood hwy, east Burwood. Also used the one on Malvern road cnr Winton rd, glen iris.

I preferred touch free auto washes over brushes when to busy for a detailed.

I used to live in vic.

I am also a fan of Laser wash. Apart from that I never soap my car just high pressure rinse and then shammy section by section before it dries.

PS got to keep your shammy very clean though... got a second for the lower sections.
