Got the luxury wash for the first time last week and I was wondering what that smell was lol.

I always get the luxury wash in the winter. I use my points to pay for it. Just buy gas at esso and swipe the card. You will get thousands of points in no time. Even faster if you get the esso visa.

Hey folks,
I am up to do a 4 step ( hand wash, clay, polish , wax) tomorrow but before doing my first step which is a hand wash, I take the car to esso to get it clean so that I need to do less of the cleaning work . Question is since I have to do my clay, polish , wax should I go just for the quick wash or the full wash described above because if I take luxury wash , it comes with that stupid wax spray which I would need to remove in the first step ... Does it make any sense what I am talking about?

If the rust inhibitor goes on the whole car it'd be pointless, so I'd probably just stick to the full wash (it's usually a good idea to clean underneath).

Don't bother with Luxury. Save the 100 points and get either the Quick or Full, depends if you want the Under Body sprayed.

Luxury wash is best for the bubble gum smell.

People ask me why I don't do rust proofing for my car every year. I answer them I take that money and just wash my car every 10 days in winter. My car looks better and rust does not have time to build up.

That strategy worked for me on my Acura Integra 2000. When I sold it in 2013 it only had some starting rust spots, but every inch square of the body was still on the car ;)

I used to always get the Luxury Wash during the winter months, but I found more often than not it left some soapy (green coloured) residue.

Now I just get the Full Wash & don't have to deal with that.

Lol, just drive ten minutes and your freshly washed car is as dirty and salted as it was before you washed it.
Undercoat it and it is protected till next fall.

I'm wondering how fast do Esso points add up.

I've been filling for maybe 6-7 months now and I'm at only 1500pts I think, so that's approx. 2-3 car washes depending on what I get. Did check my balance to see if it's been recording/accumulating points and it looks like it is.
