I just recently purchased a 2012 WRX and was thinking about washing it this weekend, however, I am not sure what I should be using as I don't want to screw anything up. I would appreciate your suggestions in regards to the following:
What kind of soap do you use?
What should I be using to dry the car so I don't scratch it?
I noticed that the hood scoop opening leads right to the engine...does that mean when I hose down the car I need to avoid the hood altogether? Or should I hose from the back to front? If a little bit of water gets in there is that damaging to the car?
What do you recommend to clean the seats and the interior (non leather seats)?
I appreciate all of your feedback. I have owned a Honda for the last 11 years and I am excited to be owning my first Subaru!
