Shell Soft Touch vs Touchless

Just wondering what people here recommend, from what I have been told by friend, soft touch can ruin your paint? but then I have been told that touchless does not wash the car properly. Wondering what you guys use.

Im going to be using this on a 2019 civic with white paint.

if you want it clean with scratches, soft touch.

If you want it semi-clean without scratches, touchless.

Touchless gets the car 95% of the way clean. Good enough!

But I like lots of touching with a rough touch.

I would wonder if doing soft touch less frequently and touch less more frequently would be fine.

I think using this so-called 'soft touch' is like asking to be scrubbed with tentacles full of dust
Heck, I don't even know what they are made of; sounds like hard rubber.

I had mine scratched by soft touch by petrocan wash near home. Unfortunately for me the closest touchless is esso which is a 15 min drive, they don’t have the 90 day wash promo. Shell touchless is even further from my home.

It is not a case where thousands of scratches would appear upon getting one touch wash.
But keep doing it and this happening is just a matter of time:

How do you find a touchless car wash in your area, without driving into each service station to look? Please recommend one in Markham?

The scratches can be restored but if you don't want it St all, avoid it. Once is enough to do the damage
