Car wash

Is it safe to go to an automatic car wash for my 2013 wrx? I don't if its an issue if water gets into the hood scoop.

Tnx

Water can get in there but that's fine,
Just a heads up tho, auto washes scratch paint 99% of the time.
I HATE them

I would hand wash. Those auto washes barely even clean the car anyways might as well save the 5 or 6 bucks and buy soap, bucket, and a mitt!
