Is it ok to take my car to the car wash if I have a CAI? I would like to go to a car wash so The bottom of my car gets nice and clean, but am worried that my engine might take in water. The filter is covered by the splash gaurd, but still...

Forget paying the $5


WASH IT BY HAND!


or, Just don't wash it like I do. :D (well at least not until next years meet) <Kidding>

Really, buy a bucket and a good sponge (use a new one each wash) and you will be amazed where you can find dirt that the car wash can't find! Then no lost sleep about getting wet! :)


Also, use Macguires 2 step polish/wax, (2 bottles)

You're better washing it yourself. Those carwash places dont properly clean the entire exterior. Besides, you feel more satisfied doing it yourself.:cool:

Not to mention the fact that they use much harsher detergents, and dont even drag that brush across your paint...(you never know who was scrubbin the underside of their Silverado)

Wash it at home by hand...

dude, you'd have to stick the CAI IN a bucket of water to get hydro-lock! but i'm w/ the others..do it by hand. that way YOUR attention to detail gets you the best result.

I do wash it by hand. I just wanted to go to a car wash once to get any crap that may be underneath my car that I cant get to with a hose.

In the winter when its just above freezing i'll go and spray it off myself for $2.. You can get the bottom too if you get real low and angle it up..

I usually do it when it gets tough to see out he windows.. here we go again, hello rocker panel rust..
