: service center cleaning?

How the hell do service centers clean a car so quickly? In the time it takes me to clean two wheels they can wash and dry a whole car? anyone know what they do to clean the cars so quickly (particularly the wheels)?

They use de-ionized water on it so they don't worry about water spots. While the vehicle is drying, they get into the wheels. Problem is, not enough attention is placed here and the results are missed spots and improper washing. Sure, it looks okay and good enough for a 5 minute wash, but I do not think it is the way most of us would appreciate or ever treat our finishes.

It comes down to what you prefer, a job done fast or a job done right.
