Please recommend wo buckets method Car Wash places or people in SoCal

Looking for recommendations:

I need a car wash place worth its salt. The type that would wash my car like I would.

Two buckets, no scooping dirt from the bottom and rubbing it in and the was up to the roof, one panel on the car done is horizontal movements and rinse in between.

If anyone knows a guy that takes washing cars seriously and without charging $100 for it, please let me know here.

Thank you team.

There is a car wash in northern PB on Torquise that is pretty good. Most professional shops don't use the two bucket method because it's inefficient when you have power hoses. Another great place is 5 Point Detail in Kearny Mesa. You'll pay more but Adam does great work but his real magic is coatings.

Why don't you just buy two buckets, go to a car wash in the off-hours and hand wash it yourself? That's what I do most times.

When we travel and are away from home, we go to one of the $2.00 wash places and with the first bit of time , spray the car off and the soap brush. We then hover the soap brush over the car , allowing the soap to drip onto the car and use up the time on the system to get soap on the car. We never allow the brush to touch the car. We then use our towel to wash the car with the soap the system. Once done we add some coins to then rinse the car and then dry with our towels.
