It boggles my mind how an HOA can do that...

And why would they make such a rule in the first place?

It's no secret that Californians are a bit eccentric

Plenty of HOAs are eccentric, too. In fact, average HOA politics would make most of the nut jobs in DC (or Sacramento) look like Solomon.

HOAs are super picky down here, luckily there are a few options.

I use http://experiencedetailing.com/ for my cars. They did a great job on my 991.2 C4 and they do mobile work. He details for Air Force One and flies across the USA / South America to train other guys so he knows his stuff.

Also if you are a DIY guy, there is a car wash off of Lake Forest (all the way up off Dimension near the toll road) that has pressure washers.

AKawasaki, I assume you don't have a garage and driveway? I can imagine HOA barring washing alongside other cars in communal parking. Waterless is good for maintenance. For low cost solutions I'm always scared by the towels these places use. Some of my neighbors (in Irvine in an HOA area) have mobile washing trucks, and their paint looks beyond my pain threshold. DIY !

Or come to my house and we'll do you proud!

Our HOA isn't that restrictive, thank goodness. I would literally move if they banned washing my own car on my own driveway using water that I paid for! Next thing you know, the HOA will dictate how much toilet paper you can use.
On a happier note, I love these forums. I ordered a bottle of ONR and just got done using this stuff. I tried it on one of my other cars and man, this stuff really works! I'm completely sold. My baby will get a bath in the garage tomorrow. All you tree huggers can go back to humping your trees now.

My current home is HOA and Mello Roos free! In my last place, two of my neighbors (one was the HOA president and a seemingly nice lady) got in a fight over cutting down a tree. The tree was in the guys yard, HOA lady said she wanted to keep it - by HOA rules he was not allowed to cut it down. Got so bad she actually spit toothpaste all over the guy. Rather than argue with the lady, I would have just cut down the tree and then dare her to do something. HOA rules can be totally arbitrary and seriously make no sense at all.

I got the ONR idea from these forums; they are indeed very helpful.

lol. I had a run in with the so-called HOA BOD when we first moved in. One dude on there was understanding and cordial but the rest were complete morons IMO. They appeared to be on some sort of a power trip. My guess is they were thrown in the trash can on their first day of high school....revenge of the nerds.

Steve's Detailing Company is amazing. https://www.yelp.com/biz/steves-deta...company-irvine. I work in the building for the garage and I can't recommend Tim enough. It's nice because I can drop it off and go to work but he does an amazing job.
