I live on the East End of Long Island. I have had to hand wash my own car, because there is nobody available or willing to do it at reasonable prices.
All of the ads and google searches bring me to car detailers at $300-$500--plenty of those.
Last week a business card was put under my wipers for hand car wash. Called the number and made an appointment. Owner showed up on time with truck (self contained water tank, pressure washer--etc.)
Bottom line---he washed my car for $60.00 and it looked better than a detailing. Applied Rain-X, leather cleaner, tire cleaner etc. The car looked showroom new.
If anybody is interested here is the contact:

Give him a try, I was truly impressed

That's very good - my wash/external detail guy charges $120 in LA.

I've yet to wash mine...going on 6 months now. Ahh, the joys of living in San Diego. Just a "California Duster" and some Meguir's Quik Detailer spray is all she needs.

It never ceases to amaze me about the things I learn on this site. Now we now the comparative differences in the cost of living in Texas, LA, and NY.
Maybe Rick Perry is on to something.

Bert and I are both in the Dallas area if I'm not mistaken. Texas is a good place. And, we still have a dealership that honors the Fisker warranty. Life is good, still.

Guys, any advice on a car wash so the water does not get into CIU . I saw couple post about the rain that was causing leakage into CIU so I am little concern on the car wash thing... Any tip will be deeply appreciated. I am in Arizona and we don't get much rain. However we get unlimited sun....

Avoid heavy spraying of water into the cowling area where the cabin filter is .Oh use water less wash and yes that's what it's called I do professional detailing when I'm bored . If you like a link to it let me know . Two buckets of water one for the fresh water the other for the chemical . Take a look at www.autogeek.net you will learn a lot .

Mine gets hand washed for $35 at the local car wash.
I get a flawless professional car wash for $20 in Aventura, FL. it was just raised from $17. It's iin the Gulfsream horse racing Park plaza. They even use power air to blow out any any hidden water in cracks. Sounds like all of you are overpaying. I pay them $79 for their wax.

Well, Eric, I may pay a bit more ($15) for the wash, but our wax goes for $59 vs. your $79.
Your car wash charges $35 for a wash and only $24 more to wax it?? Sounds unreal. Is it a hand wax with carnauba wax?

May $79 wax includes the $20 wash. ($59 extra for the wax).

you get no swirl marks from the duster?

btw the chemical guys hybrid v7 or their eco green wash is much better then the meguir's product..
