Munich car wash

Dropping off on Wednesday.... Does the car wash near the airport take credit cards or do we need to make sure we have enough euros left? About how much does it cost?

Thanks!!!

I don't know but it's certainly cheaper than paying Loginout to wash your car!

I recall using the leftover Euro coins in my pocket. I don't remember whether there was a credit card option.

After checking with my wife, I can confirm that last month there was no credit card option.

There is a second automatic car wash in an OMV gas station close to the airport that accept credit cards and it is open until 10:00pm... 15 Euros and a free umbrella.

Just used it, there are only coin options if you are spraying yourself, cost me about 7.00 euros to do a pretty good job.

don't waste your precious time washing the car, just drop an extra 30 Euros when leaving the car at the DropInOut, they'll wash AND wax the car for ya; not only it'll save you time & sweat (especially during the humid summer), they'll do a better job than you washing it yourself, as the wax can further protect the paint through sea-water's corrosive transport.

wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am.

Thanks, gang. Went through the automatic wash at Agip and took the 9.95 option. It did a fine job. We wiped down the door frames, etc. by hand. DIRTY week!

Arrived early for drop-off; it went quick and smooth. Waiting to board the plane and feeling the separation anxiety set in.....

Wait until you're driving your old car for a bit and then you'll really miss your new one. That was the worst part of the ED experience for me.
