Hi, First time poster here.

I was thinking of taking my ZS through the automatic car wash at the local Morrisons. My only worry is the rollers popping up the front plate covering the charging port when they go over then snapping it off when they go back.
I was just wondering If anyone has taken there's though an automatic car wash and if so was it okay?
Thanks :)

Did a similar issue happen with your previous cars with the fuel filler flap? Just wondering? :unsure:

Apart from swirl marks in the paint you'll be fine.

Personally I avoid using car washes. It's really not that hard to keep them clean, and the more polished the car the easier it is to wash of tiff dirt.
I use the one-bucket-excessive-soapy-water technique. Just ensure the sponge is oversaturated so it doesn't have a chance to pick up the dirt :)

I watched the ICE in front of me going into the wash the other day (one of those that pulls you through) and the guy was jet washing the rear as it entered. The filler flap popped open and the guy just washed it closed again.:eek::ROFLMAO:

I've been only hand washing my car thus far, so have no personal experience with automatic car washes. Another thing all the car washes around offer a discount with the purchase of gas, and I wouldn't know what to do with that, as I'm sure you can't sell gas on eBay.
Have you taken your car to an automatic car wash? Anything bad happened? Anything fell off or maybe water got where it shouldn't? Is underbody wash safely?
