If the touchless is the ones that just sprays high pressure water, then I can see how that would make a car leak.

Do either of you have tinting on your windows? I'm perhaps dreaming, but it seems like ever since I had the tinting done, I get a few more drips than I got without them. I'm also trying to balance this with the car being subjected to a 6 week hiatus from the normal rubber seal conditioning regimen during the last hot part of the summer.

If your sport doesn't put blood, dirt or grease under your fingernails,
then it's just a game.
