Do you like to wash your own car or take it thru the car wash?


The reason i ask is because i want to decide if i want to wash my first car myself or just take it thru the car wash and let those big fat roller mops do it in general. 

Update 2:

Thank you for your answer Armouror-All. I like those car products by the way. They make my dash and tires shiny.

    I tend to wash my own cars - either in front of my house, or at one of those self-serve deals with the brush and pressure sprayer.

    I enjoy spending a few minutes going over the car and checking to see if anything needs attention.

    I try to hand wash, but with this broke leg, I'll have to run her thru a machine pretty soon. Lots of ash from CA fires, it shows on a white car.

    I usually wash it myself cause I'm really poor.  Most car washes these days are hand wash.

    Ever felt the brushes in a car wash? They are nylon and scratch you paint badly. Use a bucket and sponge (actually several buckets).

    I have washed my own car for half a century.  When a car wash or it's employees make damage, try to get the damage removed.  It won't happen.

    I wash my car at home sometimes, but I prefer to take it to the car wash because it's faster.

    I like to wash my own car. It’s better for the paint and the environment.
