I pride myself on being an auto-enthusiast who’s far more concerned about how my car performs than how it looks. The motivation to wash and detail my car is only barely there – enough to want to avoid embarrassment when I pull into a parking lot or arrive at a meetup, but only barely. For years, I told myself that adding $10 at a fuel pump to run my car through some brutal automated wash tunnel was good enough.
I was lying to myself. Now that I can happily wash my car properly in about 15 minutes, I’ll never go back.
