Anyone know of any Laser Car Washes in the area?

What area? Are you in VA or MD?

I'm in the Herndon area, but anywhere along 270 would work too.

This link has a 1.800 number to find one near you.

There is one in mclean but it really doesn't work all that well. I like it because it doesn't scratch the car (unlike those crummy typical ones with there huge giant oversized towel things)... but it doesn't get a lot of stuff off the car, never dries it sufficiently, and leaves the front and rear bumper dirty as it was when you entered

I've been going to the Brushless carwash for 7 years now and my bimmer looks as good as it did when I purchased it. I have never had any problems with Yates Carwash on Hwy 1. I've never tried Laser because I'm told they do a crappy job of cleaning. My only caution is that Yates tunnel exit is a steep drop to the street and if your car is lowered it my scrape slightly on the exit from the tunnel. Any who, just my two and a half cents.

Yates is brushless but not touchless. What I don't like about Yates is they use the same dirty towel to wipe off car after car after car. Not exactly cheap either.

Does anyone have any recommendations for car washes in Arlington, VA? I called the WashTech folks and they didn't have any locations there....
