    Hey so almost every time I take my 2016 civic sedan through the automatic car wash, I always find a ripped off piece from the scrubbers caught in the side of my hood or headlights. Has anyone else been having the same experience, or is it just my civic that acts like a dog that hates baths? haha

    I attached pictures I took after the car wash that the dealership did after doing the B1 service for my car.

    Better it takes the bite than the other way around I suppose.

    Nah, that plastic bit sticks out on mine too. I'd be really careful with how you get it washed because something could hook that hard enough to possibly break or crack the plastic.

    Oh...I actually never thought of it that way. Hmmm, I like to wash my car myself, but there are days when I don't have the time, and use the BlueWave car wash.

    I always go touchless...

    I thought the dirt stuck in those will scratch your car.
