Just look the next time you go to tesco then or call a mobile valeter out and ask him to come and look and give you a price.

Re: Tesco car wash when you shop people

our tesco just has dudes with trollys of cleaning stuff they walk around doing cars with tiny bit of water an spray stuff an scratch cars to bits. our asda have a bigger one with jet washes n hovers they scratch cars too. if you must get there first thing an be first in the queue at least you get fresh water with less grit then

Re: Tesco car wash when you shop people

Well I only ever cleaned the panda 5 times max in the three years I had it, by hand never by anyone else

and the punto you can see all the scratches where its obviously been in a car wash and where other people have washed it. So no i'd rather do it myself.

Plus the punto was valeted, wash and waxed before I had it so wont need washing for let me see 2 years

40. So what you get for that? Thought you said they only Henry it

This cleaning your car business gives me a headache. Think I'll go back to a Classic Panda and keep it dirty

Dosen't help that I lend Stilo to mother for a week and get it back with tea spilt over the center console

First and last time she'll be using it!

Having seen the state of one or two cars which the dealers have "Valeted" i kick up a stink when i take it in for a service make sure they write DO NOT WASH on the service sheet (dragged one chap outside to show him why (showed him my car then an identical brand new one which was in worse condition )

I've got the works car cleaned a few times by car park guys armed with a pressure washer and some snow foam. Could never let them near my own car though!
