I have had cars in primer paint (34 dodge, gto) where that doesn't work, but I tend to keep the cars waxed, and it works for me. The 1966 corvette I owned for 25 years, went coast to coast and border to border on road tours, getting washed in motel parking lots with a motel waste bin full of plain water. It only needed a repaint after 18 years because it was hit in the side.
    Yeah but you will still get those fine scratches in your clear coat

    I also use Zip Wax in my wash water. That's just for washing, though, and I've used it since I was a teen. That was many, many years ago

    Not on my CTS either. No way. I always hand wash with lots of water and soap. I also use Pinnacle Brazilian Carnuba after. The black shines ten miles deep.
    My gripe is after washing the car it takes its time shedding water. Even if I use my back pack blower before towel drying, the car slowly drips water down the doors from the moldings. Drives me nuts !! Lol
    Bad ass looking car though all shined up. I love it.

    Along with Zip Wax car wash, I wax with Meguiar's NXT or Ultimate, three times per year.
