Autowash almost Ripped off my Wing!!

Yikes!
I went to a drive up "Feather Touch" car wash.
Everything seemed to be going well until the machine tried to come from the the rear of the car. It ended up ripping the wing right up and almost off.. (well not completely off) But pulled the anchor bolt thru the roof....

It's at the Mazda dealer now getting some TLC...

Yikes! Yeah, the rear wing acts like a handle.

Good reason to only hand wash.

Or only go to a "touchless" automatic car wash... I haven't gone through one that actually touches the car in years after seeing the scratches pile up on one of my cars :shock:

Holy shit! LOIL! $400 VS. $1000, could have pocketed atleast $550 - $600 for tires, wheels, exhaust, AP, etc.
