3-4 hours, depending on if I'm doing the interior and the exterior. That and 7 or 8 different chemicals. NO ARMOUR ALL.

It takes me about 3-5 hours especially if I do the interior too. Some people say that I take too long but then again what are they driving. LOL

How long does it take to go through a car wash?

Also, living in Seattle, I get the poor mans wash about once a day through the winter time.

I guess I could clarify that for those that don't know, winter time is September 31st through July 4th.

Yes it does!!! Tires, rims, the whole thing for 14 I think? You can get cheaper packages but it doesn't include undercarriage and/or tire/rim cleaning.
