I have noticed some tasty metal now using the car wash outside surrey quays shopping centre.

Anyone here used them?

Seem very professional
I live up the road and personally think they're rubbish.
The guys down the road after the Shell garage heading towards Greenwich are much better IMHO
Thanks mate, I had been using the one after the shell garage until recently.

I'm now paranoid about grit ....

I use them for the M3 and the 355, but I'm not too precious about the cars to be honest.

The place under the arches near Tower Porsche on the South side of Tower Bridge is excellent. Used them for years.

Hi
If your ever out near Hainault theres a car wash at the old SYTNER site in Forest Road. Its certainly the best around here imho. (no plastic scoops to move water here they use compressed air)

I use a place out in Rainham on the main drag - bit of a way out on the A12 - get off at Hornchurch exit. Gives the car a decent run (8 mile round trip from the wharf). The one I use is an ex-garage forecourt all painted yellow (next door to Elite tyres) - good job inside and out / wax etc. The guys there really take pride in their work and charge about £15.
Bringing a massively old thread back to the top and thanks for this info, still there and still good today. No plastic blades in sight!

Demise of my previous favourite on cambridge heath road E2 caused me to search.

Any other recommendations ideally in E3 and up to date appreciated.

Riverside Car Wash
36 Westferry Circus
LONDON
Greater London
E14 8RL

The worst car wash in town. Do not take your car there it will be badly scratched!
I have a brand new car that was completely scratched all over during this car wash, I suspect with sandy cloths (as there are deep, circular scratches). When I complained, I was sworn and shouted at. This is the first ever review I have written just to warn people not to get in the same situation.

Bumping this - what’s the 2022 recommendation for a decent car wash (I.e. 2 bucket method, won’t scratch the paint) around E14?

No one?

For one of the largest car forums in the country, this place is rather dead!

Used them today. Very happy with the result, had them apply the "protection" finish, discount code still works.
Have seen them in action, I had the impression they know what they are doing. For those who might be interested, in some weeks they'll be able to also offer PPF installation, worth a check imho.

Booking needed on Saturday as you can imagine.

Called Detailz today and they asked me £60 for a carbon ceramic breaks "safe" wash. Anyone knows another place suitable for a car with Carbon Ceramics in East London?
