    I feel for you guys who need to put up with snow, i like to keep my car immaculate so i'm glad i don't need to deal with snow, but if i had to, i don't think i'd purchase a nice car, probably buy some rusted out ford f100.... lol

    Look for a brush that has microfibre bristles. I had one, it was the best invention ever. Never scratched. Unless, of course, there is a layer of dirt on the paint before it snows then no matter what you'll be scratching it.

    its impossible lol. the best ive come up with is to get as much off as i can without touching the paint, and then get in it and slide sideways a little bit to get the loose snow off. from there the warm engine melts most of it off

    If your Subaru is parked for the winter find another brand.
    amen. just buffing once every spring time helps....dings are preventable, swirls and scratches are not.

    They do scratch easy
    Ive got fingernail scratches by the door latchs
    and big circular marks from when the dealer gave me a free hand wash.
    I have a couple of snow removal marks as well
    Where I am we can get a foot of snow and ice overnight
    and the police will ticket you if you drive without removing it
    (because it can kill the guy behind you)
    I use a SWIFFER with rag tied around the end
    You can still get scratched by the pole or some dirt on the paint
    Helps to have a good coat of wax
    eventually I will paint my 09 WRX flat grey.
    But till then, she looks good with those scars
    Like the tough little beast she is
