The fibers in the automated car wash's machines hold onto debris from various vehicles and those fibers effect your vehicles paint. The machines have been proven to make major swirls and imperfections in your paint. Even if you put all your effort into stopping scratches and imperfections within your paint, it still happens due to many events that occur without your control. The next step in your cars journey is to get a new paint job, right? Wrong! There's still a chance to save your vehicle and your wallet with a cheaper option. It's called paint correction.
