2017 Black MKX, brand new.

I have taken it through a touchless car wash twice - each time the results are not all that great.

Clearly, there's leftover dirt.

I'm concerned about using a soft-cloth car wash service, but maybe I'm worrying over nothing.

Any ideas?

Hand car wash, cost more but the difference is appreciated.

After a watch, Black car look good for about 1 minutes...  

 

Had one, probably never will have another one.

Depends how hard you wanna work and how much you wanna spend.  2 bucket method for washing by hand.  Or No Rinse wash using a product like ONR (Optimum No Rinse).  You'll need to invest in product and good microfibers for that.  It's also harder work than driving up to a car wash.  The difference?  Irrefutable.

Nothing beats a good old fashioned hand wash.  Unless it's freezing, I usually manage to do the caras ( '15 MKS & '16 MKX) muself.  There is a hand car wash a few miles away that will do a hand wash for $9.00 for a car and $13.00 for a SUV, exterior only.  Prices go up considerably for inside, out and tire shine, but still worth it, especially in cold weather.

Look for local Groupon hand-wash deals. You can sometimes get some that are not much more than a good soft-cloth (I go soft-cloth with hand finish)
