    Your guess is as good as mine, but I’ve read through out the various GT series that the car wash basically does nothing other than make the car more shiny. I haven’t really noticed the difference in shine to be honest, but I have noticed in many instances the car suspension and brakes seems to handle better right after a wash. Maybe I’m the only one or ?

    If you don't wash your car for thousands of miles you get a neat 2-tone paint job with the lower half of your car being white-ish. Might also impact your speed I can't remember exactly.

    Will all that dirt make the car heavier?
    :lol:
    Honestly I think the car wash is a waste of time and money

    Car wash is when you don't care about the rigidity of your car but do care about how it looks. :D
    Well, this is why I never noticed what it does in GT6, because I restore the body rigidity.
    In Gran Turismo 5 it was different, you got a dirty car quick.

    You have to wash you car because a dirty car will only slow you down and nice clean car you will make you go faster.

    In the earlier games it adds more reflection to the car on the replay (GT1-3) I think?

    This seems to be surreal but why is a car wash applied after you do an oil change to your car? Not sure about GT6 but his happens in GT5.

    GT Car wash was always cheap, in London if you want a cheap car wash you have to go to one of the eastern European hand wash places.

    Well, it could be cheaper if you do it on your own. :lol:

    I noticed after 1200km my Huayra have a bit of a white-ish effect toward the bottom. However the effect only showed when I or B-Spec bob was driving it, and never showed in the garage or GT Auto menus. Not even the car wash menu funny enough.

    The dirt effects only show while the car is being used and shown during the race, not when it is viewed in the menu.
