I love the look of black cars but hate the maintentance of the finish. They just never seem to look "right" after a few years. Have not seen a swirling brush car wash out here on the left coast for years and years. They were horrible for "swirls" and you always had the problem of the guy before you had taken his Jeep through the mud pits last week and the grit was stuck on the brushes! The washes now use a felt strip sort of thing, or brushless which is just high pressure water jets. Never had a swirl problem on any car/SUV with either of those -- and I only use car washes, never hand wash any more (too lazy).
