Help Mr. Wizzard.....Im experiencing a real world problem here.....LOL......I live in a highrise condo and have no ability to wash my own car, plus my garage area is so dark Id hate to see the final product if I even attempted to wash my windows while parked. Now before you all unload on me, I have researched and found a car wash that is a hand wash (no brushes) and they are very careful. The car does get rolled thru the process tho....following those tracks like most car washes have.
My question is this.....how do I take my car to the car wash and get it thru? when I pull in, I put the car in park and the brake sets itself. The car wash wants to set the car in neutral and allow the machine to roll it thru the wash process. I dont apparently have a neutral on an electric car, and really dont trust the attendants to start tweeking my settings to get the car into 'Tow' mode.
Would this just be easier to have them drive the car thru? That concerns me only for the fact that this car is REALLY REALLY FAST, and I picture some car wash attendant flying my car thru the wash and right into the rear of the car in front of me.
What ever should I do?? This is really freaking me out!! (incidentally, I did ask this question when I took delivery of my X last week......Three sales folks later and not one had any idea of how to deal with the car wash process.)
