    If it has brushes, absolutely not. I've not used the Meguiars products, sorry. Optimum No Rinse works well, from my experience. Otherwise, I'll use the automatic touchless washes.

    I had never heard of the automatic touchless washes. I'll have to look into it in my area.

    They're usually with the do-it-yourself washes with the spray wands in a separate bay.

    This is what some of the gas stations near me have. Completely unattended car wash boxes that you drive into, usually with a coupon after filling up.

    In some areas touchless car washes are called Laserwash.

    I hand wash all my cars, never use a power wash. Soft fiber mitt and car soap from the same company that makes the wax I use (McGuires). Water does not remove the dirt well enough at car washes and you have to clay-bar the car before you wax it unless you hand-wash. My 13 year old GTO feels like it has been clay-bar'd it's never needed that because I keep it clean.
