CarWash

I have just purchase a BA XR6 and would like to keep it nice and clean. Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of washing my car on the lawn. So I regularly take it down to my local Car Lovers and use the Laser Wash System as the nomal Carlovers bay brushes can scratch you car as i found out with my last car.
My question is, is the Laser Wash system bad for your car. It seems to put a lot of pressure directly on to the car.
