    There is a new carwash that has opened up near me (SE Great White Carwash) and they have a $45 a month special ($135 three months).
    When you can wand wash by hand for $6-$8 you need to be hitting up the car wash a lot to use up more then $45/month. Are people actually washing over once per week?

    Also that new car wash is awesome, I go there all the time.

    Are these monthly rates unlimited washes or how does that work exactly? I've only ever seen the ten-time pack deals or similar.

    Currently I wash my car 1-2 times as week for ceramic coating maintenance, and even though it's a lease it has been babied because I don't know if I am keeping it or not for sure yet.

    One wash per day. It's the most environmentally unfriendly thing to do, but boy is it awesome. We used to have unlimited washes in Core P4 parking. Fuck I miss those days.

    Anyone know which Petro car washes are touchless in Calgary? Their website shows only 2, and in the NE. That can't be right.

    That $199 3 month pass seems appealing this year haha.
    We're on that right now.

    We frequent:
    Panorama - Superwash. Generally the worst for getting a lot of the corners and trunk
    Cross Iron - Glide wash
    Country Hills @ Barlow - Glide wash

    We have tried:
    Crowfoot - Superwash
    Monterey Park - Actual Touchless
    Mission - Hours were awful. Was not open when I tried to go.

    So yes, Based on my personal usage I have verified that there is only one touchless.

    That sounds pretty awesome to me - I will definitely be looking into this. ~$6/wash if you go every day haha.

    It's $2/wash if you go daily on a 90 day pass. If Crowfoot Petro wasn't a brush, I would've been on it long ago haha.

    We've been using this for years now, usually split between 2 or 3 households and it's used every single day for the 90 days haha. Luckily we pass the Montery Park Touchless wash on our way in to Calgary daily so it's not out of the way at all.

    If you live near / pass by a touchless wash, it can really work out. I might look into the Centex fleet card, it's a discount anyway.
    Make the world a radder place, grow a mullet.
    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins' mullet.

    Ever try the Centex app?

    I saw signs for it at the Center street centex.

    I wish Esso had this. Lots of condo owners would use the one downtown.

    I had it for a couple months. I found less product being used as time went on and I ended up with a couple scratches from the auto wash. It was sweet washing the car every other day on the way home from work though.

    Get your car washes in now or tomorrow before the deep freeze hits (if you have heated parking for a good chance to dry). -25 and colder is mother nature's ceramic coating

    Maybe but not many likely. I tried two yesterday in the NW and both were closed. Seems like -20 is the cut-off for a lot of them.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.
