Best car wash

Well winter season is in.. and we all know what salt and snow can do to a car..  
Well which do you guys think is the best car wash in town.. also give more info then just naming it..  
Like, which offers "do it yourself" car wash..  
which offers to wash the car for you? which offers indoor car wash (heating)?  
Which offers to dry your car before leaving the building?

I use

the Co-Op car wash on 6th Street and I like the pink soap! It's a do-it-yourselfer. I prefer that to the automatic washes. Does anyone else get claustrophobic in those?  
The only thing I don't like about the car wash I use is that I have to load up on loonies. I'd prefer to just pay when I'm done.  
(As I stated in another thread - a Midtown car wash here would be great!) I wouldn't have to do the work myself. I could watch others work for me while I have a coffee. And I wouldn't feel claustrophobic.

I wonder.....

If Giant or Glazier would allow a young person or whomever, to offer to do that at their place.  
(Which, Mikey13, are indoor, and as long as you want to stay inside and pay the time, you can let it dry off, or wipe dry a little... Giant is East past the Mohawk on 18th St. between the bridges. Glazier is East of Kiddie Zone on Park, just of 18th. Mohawk on first and Rosser, you can dry if it is slow and no one needs the spot. Co-op on Sixth just South of the Railway tracks... Wash N Wrench, Rosser Ave East, 4 blocks off First.  
Is that all folks, for indoor stall car washes....)  
so back to I wonder...  
Let's say, from 6-8 at night, and weekends, if a young entrepeneur approached them, and said he/she or THEY would give the indoor car wash place $7.50 of the $20 they collect. you drive your car into a stall, the worker hops over, kit in hand, vacuums, wipes and cleans the inside, and washes the outside, towel dries it, while you go have a coffee in their office or a burger at Wendy's ....  
I know the ladies would go for it, if he was an off duty fireman, in shorts...hell they would stand and watch while they drank their lattes ...LOL  
Food for thought, some one tell their son or daughter or next door neighbour, whomever..and post back here..  
well worth $20, like in Wpg, when you get the inside and outside cleaned... smells nice, looks nice, and saves on the therapy for the back, having to climb around inside, at my age and build.  
Like I said in the other thread, have it done, every time, we are in Wpg, so for sure, once a month if available locally....

i think

that brandon should have a fully loaded car wash system.. well atleast one.. that would be a great idea..  
like if there was a indoor car wash.. that you would be allowed a good amount of time.. without being rushed.. then that would be good as well

Bar none...

Glacier is far superior to every car wash in Brandon. I'm a car guy and an owner of one of those nice shiny cars you see downtown during summer at Cruisin' the Dub.  
Glacier has indoor washing, heated in winter. For the most part, you can dry off your car inside, if it's not to busy, a fair request IMHO. Plus, the spot free rinse actually works!

Fan of Giant Car & Truck wash

Personally, I think its the best wash in town. There's lots of spaces, good pressure, its cheap, and you pay once you're done.

Forgot about the credit card option @ Glacier, even though I always use it there and never use cash So in addition to driving away a clean car, I get airmiles too SWEET!

Washed mine yesterday at Glacier. Not to busy so had lots of time to dry off to avoid frozen doors etc.  
For the times when I am being lazy I like the Co-op on Richmond.

If you are willing to pay

You can stay in there as long as you want to dry your car off. Pay as you leave by the minute. I like it there, as at least their vacuums work. At Co-op and Glacier I always seem to get the "dud" vacuums.

forgot to add a couple of years near x-mas I was in there for quite a while and when I went to leave and pay - the gentlement said "that one's free - Merry Christmas" - what a nice unexpected suprise.
