Winter wash options

Just took delivery of a brand new BSM 2013 328i.

I've only had it 4 days but the light dusting of snow and salt on the roads making my car look dirty already!

Hand wash is somewhat out of the question considering it is 28 degrees outside and I don't have a Ton of time or a garage.

There is a touch free automatic car wash at a gas station down the street. I am sooooo tempted to go get a wash there. How bad is it for your car? Is it worse than leaving salt / dirt on the car? Just looking to avoid swirling on my brand new car.

its def worse to leave dirt or salt on the car....your completely fine going thru a touch free car wash or really even a tunnel car wash that has the microfiber brushes ect...the salt is 100% worse than going thru ANY car wash. GET YOUR CAR WASHED!!!!
