Re: Pressure Washers - Good or Bad?
My Kärcher washer came with a few attachments. I use a kind of fan attachment to wash my Alfa, removes the dirt quickly and easily from 18" or so away, but I think the jet attachment is much a more concentrated spray, and I can see that could do some damage if you got too close with it. For what it's worth, the way I do it is spray with plain water all over to remove all the dirt, go over the car with a microfibre mitt and a bucket of water with added Turtlewax shampoo, rinse all over, then if I'm feeling lazy a quick wipe over with AG Aquawax. If I was feeling energetic, I'd do the job properly with AG resin polish, but I've had the car 9 months, and Aquawax does such a good job, that I haven't felt the need to get energetic so far, maybe some time in the next few weeks though.
