    Anyone recommend any places for getting their Ferraris hand-washed in Manhattan? One that is good and safe to go to. My 360 modena is dirty and I need one pretty bad! I wish I had my own house so I can hose it myself, but this is NYC and one of the downfalls of living in an apartment.

    I have the same problem. Now I take my car to a hand-wash place on Rte 22 in NJ, but I wish there was one in Manhattan

    Guys, if either of you are in the Bay Shore, NY vicinity (South Shore of Long Island), I have a hose, a pail of suds and all the water you want :D

    I live 30 mins aways from the city, come to my house and I'll wash your 360 for free. I'll do a very good job, you can count on that. I'd only ask that you take me for a ride once I'm done.

    kekeke. you guys are tooo kind. but i would have to drive 30 minutes away and back. i think the gas i burn off the 360 would cost more than a car wash itself!! ;)

    Are you talking about the New Look car wash? If so do you have any trouble getting your car inside that place, the ramp is kinda steep.

    A suggestion for other Manhattanites: I asked my super and now he lets me use the hose at my building - I just park at the hydrant right out front, bring my pail, soap and other car cleaning stuff and wash the car.

    This past weekend, I had my TR and my bro's Porsche out at the curb for a car washing session.

    If you can't set something like this up with your super, let me know, and stop by when I'm washing my car, and you can do yours too.

    David, still want to drive the T/R. Check out the OBI pictures. Good time. You will have to take a drive out one day and we can take a run down there.

    I saw the OBI pictures and was sad I missed it - must have been great. I will try to make it in a couple weeks.
    The offer's still open for a drive in the TR, but I've been super busy with work lately.

    Well, I used to go to the car wash on 92nd(?) and 1st Avenue. They did a decent hand wash job for about $30. Unfortunately, they have recently moved. I am not sure, but I think they moved to Washington Heights or something. I haven't ventured up there yet.

    Speaking of car washes, I am at school in PA and have gotten too cheap/lazy to take it to any places that do handwashes. I used to take my car to an automatic place that did a decent job; but now I find myself taking my car to those fully automatic car washes you find at gas stations. I have a black Mercedes G500, and the swirl marks I have are incredible, lol.

    Hubert, try westside highway and 55th St (or some where around there). Full wash and detail should run you about $100; wash only would be less. Also, why can't your garage hand wash your car? My garage does it for $20 bucks...$50 if detailed inside and out.

    P.S. I lost your business card, but we should grab lunch or drinks since I'm at 85 Broad.

    Is that car wash on West side highway and 55th handwash?

    Or you drive your car in and the machines take care of it?

    The carwash on the West side highway is at 46th street and is fully automated and I take my Cayenne Turbo there. I have never seen a seperate hand wash area, but I will ask them about it
