New car, most will take it to the car wash and call it good, but I like doing things myself and would rather wash it myself. So, to help me and others here, how do you guys wash your cars? 2 bucket method, something more basic or more of a process? What products do you like to use and would recommend? Show off your 11th Gen while its being washed or right after!

Check out the subreddit r/autodetailing if you are starting out, they have a very comprehensive wiki on basically anything you could think of asking for starting out.

I usually do 2 bucket wash and spray detailer at a minimum, probably once a month. Once the weather warms up I do a wash, bug remover, take the rims off and clean them with cleaner and a brush, clay bar, and a 2 step compound and polish. Finish off with the turtle wax hybrid solutions ceramic spray.

I also do not drive my car much, maybe 3-4000 kilometres per year and most of that is in the summer so it doesn’t get too dirty usually.

I don't like bending over and touching the water and soap and vehicle, I like the idea of a foam cannon, soap it up and wash it off, but it doesn't work as well as a good scrub.
