Why would you ever take a car like that through a car wash and use the Cal Duster?
It's your car and you're the one making the payments; you can do whatever you damn well please
But, a car like that deserves better IMHO. The paint on Maserati is extremely thin. The car wash not only uses harsh chemicals to clean the car, but introduces swirls and scratches, The duster only adds to the damage. I've never been a fan of the duster and this is just my feelings here. I could never understand how an oily cotton fiber gets better when there's more dirt and grit on it. The best thing is to wash the car. There are other products such as Optimum No Rinse wash that basically only use up about 3 gallons of water to wash the car. You wash with the No Rinse and wipe off with microfiber towels. Zymol also makes a duster that we use at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance when the cars are on the field http://www.glisteningperfection.com/duster.php
. Hope this adds some light on the subject.
