I don't have a place to hand wash mine per se, but I take it across the street to the do it yourself spray car wash and just use the water. I use a mitt to clean the car and everything so it's basically a handwash, just not in my driveway

I always prefer to hand wash... however its not always possible. There is a fantastic car wash near me so I did take it there once so far.. they did a great job, no swirl marks or scratches.. this car wash specializes in higher end vehicles like ferrari, porsche, rolls, etc. they have a wide track and one guy spends about 20 min drying and detailing the car.
i would never bring my car to just any car wash though
