Thumbs down How NOT to wash your Merc!

I out of words, this is just pure-Moronism. Why would you do this to your car or somebody's car. See for yourself guys

Angry Re: How NOT to wash your Merc!

Wow, thats some way of keeping your CLS clean. Is CLS waterproof enough?

Is this being done at a professional workshop or a DIY thing?

I used to see something similar being done at service to Amby's and FIATs (could have been Premier ...) in the late 70's or early 80's. Even then they refrained from hosing the dash. These cars all had rexine sides and seats.

Oh My God!!!

Looks like the guy washing the Merc is upset with the owner of the car. The leather seats will be destroyed, so will the electronics of the car. That is a definite no-no.

The car is clean for sure. Maybe if he was lucky, there wouldn't have been any problem to the car.

The Gusto and relish with which he is doing it is as if he is taking out all his pent up frustration on the POOR Merc's Driver. Im sure he must have had a pretty WET drive after that.
Though I wouldn't wish that done to any car- they have heart's too.

I think that he is not deliberately damaging the car. He plainly looks stupid to me who thinks that this is an awesome idea to make the car clean as new.

The video description on youtube says the owner himself is washing it. Gutsy guy I say.

May be he is a murderer and is trying to remove all the blood from the seats.

the speakers in the doors are wasted for sure. Does merc honour warranty in such cases, technically he is just washing the car.
