Wash and wax

Brand new boxster owner with a question about washing the car. I'm rather lazy and would prefer to have someone else do the washing and waxing. Do I need to go to an Auto Detail shop or would a touchless car wash do the job without causing any damage?

oh darn I missed the part about lazy..

Optimum No Rinse.


pour an ounce into a two gallon bucket of water.
Take a wool mit/sheepskin/sponge and clean the car with it.
dry with a waffle weave drying towel.
Dump out the water (eco friendly), put away the bucket and
go inside and eat a sandwich.
No hose to put away, no suds in the driveway to wash away.
Clean car in 10 minutes.

I really enjoy washing and waxing my Boxster! You need to slow down a little and enjoy the car from the outside!
