What is Contouring?

Contour washing visual

Autowash Contouring uses optic sensors to follow the shape of a vehicle to maximize the effectiveness of the wash cycles.  By keeping the wash closer to the vehicle, we are able to apply a better rinse and dry experience.

The Contour Dry follows the main body of the vehicle.  We use 99.995% mineral free water to prevent spotting after a rinse, and the dryer will remove approximately 98% of the water on the vehicle after the wash.  It is recommended to towel off the vehicle after the wash as needed for any drops of R.O. water that remains.


If you have attachments on your vehicle that extend beyond 6 inches from the main body of the vehicle, you must only use the Essential Wash.  If you use any other wash package with attachments (factory or aftermarket) you are liable for any damage caused to the automatic machinery.  ANY items that extend 10 inches from the vehicle may NOT be washed in the Automatic Wash at all.
