touchless car wash in GTA without tracks

Can anyone suggest a touchless car wash in the GTA/mississauga that doesn't have the tracks that you drive onto? I've seen ones where you can just drive in and the wash happens while your car sits still. After your done, you drive off.

TIA

Esso touchless washes usually don't have tracks. They are the type where you drive in and the machine does it's thing around your car.

Also if you collect Esso points it's good value.
$599 in regular gas gets you 599 points which is required for a top of the line wash (10.99 value).

10.99/599 = 1.8% return, plus you still get your cc points.

Premium gas gets you 3x the points, so it's a 5.4% return, or 1 wash every $199 in premium gas.

Just a thought:

Those touchless washes IMO are a rip. They basically do one pass to wet the car, one pass with soap, and one more to rinse. Most of the time you drive out of there with shit still all over the car. You're better off spending the $8 or whatever at a wash bay and have way more time to wash/rinse and target specific areas. Just use the soap spray from the gun and not the brush. Plus you can spray underneath to wash off some of the salt/crud.

Petro Canada also offers car washes without tracks. They go by the name 'Glide' go onto their website and search for a Glise location near you. You can choose from touchless or softcloth.

If you are not happy after you pass through a touchless you just go back in, complain and they will let you go through again. My mom has gone through 3 times onces.

Most of them are satisfaction guaranteed.
