I must admit that having ceramic ooating does make it easier to wash the car. Now if I lived in a state with cold winters I would have to rethink washing the car myself.There is also the option (not listed in the survey) of driving to a detailing shop and getting a hand wash there, which I have done.
I have also hand washed it myself using Meguier's gold shampoo and microfiber mitts and towels, which was a pleasure and took about 15 minutes.
I have a ceramic coating on the car so will only hand wash it myself or by a detailer. But the coating cleans very easily.
here is my car just washed.
