Wash car near Munich dropoff

Any convenient places near the Munich dropoff? None of that automatic stuff - just a place where the dirt can be rinsed off without damaging my paint

Time to plan for another one!

They remind me of ours from 3 years ago. We are going again this September! So excited.

Just a note, I would allow some extra time for washing (maybe the afternoon before your flight) as when I went to wash mine at the end of June the Agip near the Munich airport pictured above had it's car wash bays all roped off for repairs (I assume?). Anyway, I wish I could tell you where we finally found another self wash but I really have no idea...just kept visiting gas stations on the nav screen until one a ways out had one.

I assume the Agip wash bays have been reopened by now but just a consideration.

We cleaned and washed the car an hour before our appointment and can tell you that the self service bays were all open. This was on July 8th.
Pics above were taken around 2 in the afternoon.

We did the full service wash for 9.95 euros, I was surprised what a good job it did.

Oh yes and BTW I am still suffering separation anxiety. Last I checked our vessel was just leaving the Isthmus of Panama and heading north with about a week to go before reaching Port Hueneme.

Is the self wash bays require feeding coins for continuous service? English instruction to operate?

If for some reason you end up without enough time to wash your car then for 40 Euro LogInOut will wash and wax your car for you after drop-off.

I did that and the car arrived at my dealer spotless.

Feeding coins for continuous service, yes. English, no. But there were pictures and it was easy enough to figure out.

For those wondering how clean your car needs to be at drop-off.....It was actually raining when we washed our car. We rinsed it just enough to get the dirt, bugs, etc. off to please customs. No brush or soap. We drove it to an airport hotel (still in the rain) and then to LOGINOUT the next morning. The LOGINOUT rep said it looked fine, no problems.

As I remember, the AGIP station car wash was closed on Sunday when I dropped by.

Was there last Friday at the Agip, all bays open and working.

A note of caution, at least for 3-series owners. My entire life I've pulled into a gas station, grabbed the squeegee, and pulled the wipers vertical to the windshield so I can clean it off. On the 3 series (and perhaps other models) the wipers are now recessed below the hood and can't be pulled vertical. So if you're still a bit jet-lagged and not paying too much attention, you could put a nice scratch into the shiny new paint.

I wouldn't say the best, just the closest.

I've attached a map.

Washed mine here as well. It was also raining lightly when I did it but LogInOut said they are really only focused on the bugs being removed vs. the car being totally clean so it all workd out. I use the self wash bays and spent probably 4 Euro doing so. I did, however, go inside and buy the Sonax bug removal sponge which did a great job of cleaning the leading edges of the car. I also use the app "Word Lens" for translating misc signs and text on my trip and it worked perfectly to decifer the self wash bay options (though the pictograms worked well as well). There is another gas station wash a little further away but the Agip was perfect for the purpose.

I used the self-service bay in March for about an hour...I'd guess there's a total of 6-10 stalls, and I was the only one there (Monday around 9:30a).

I don't use automatic washes, so for a MUC drop off, this has to be the best since it's closest to LogInOut.

I planned ahead and brought little bottles of my car soap, wheel cleaner, and quick detail spray in my TSA-approved bag o' liquids.

I brought an empty gallon distilled water jug from the U.S.! It was mainly to reduce the dirt on the top part of the rear bumper by the trunk. It could have been used to rinse some bugs on the front bumper but there weren't any.

I also brought a Torx bit to removed the warning triangle bracket.

The car was polished and ready for shipment overseas when it was delivered at the Welt. From what I have been told at the VDC and elsewhere, it's not even good for the paint to wax this early. It's also going to get dirty in transit. I've been to the port and VDC enough to see what the cars look like coming off the boat.

It's a waste of 40€ and risks possible damage to the paint so I would skip this.
