Okay maybe I have never seen carwash.com new website until today. I’m a little behind. This carwash stuff is trying to kill me. So I went to their site and it’s a new color red? But they got rid of their forum and started over! REALLY! Didn’t they have a really large forum? I really can’t remember I HATED the layout! Also why on earth didn’t they convert it? The matter what it COULD be converted… I guess the decision was not to. Which seems interesting. As a programmer I was given really bad crap to convert so I know there is no why it was not doable.
Do could I have the old forum carwash.com? Well if you are the ones that had a forum in the first place.
LOL Just kidding!
Why would Ryko publish their Code-A-Wash 4 Manual? or what every their entry unit is called? I forgot the name of the thing which I OWN!
I actually called Ryko they said they do not have it in PDF format… BUT I can purchase it! I think it was $50-100? NICE! Why would they put it online?
Also what really bugs me is on their website they state under “Ryko Advantage” “Proprietary Technology”? WHAT! Shouldn’t customers demand the exact opposite? If the Car Wash industry demanded better standard products maybe we would have products like the vending industry? With interchangeable parts? With DEX and MDB? Instead we have dumb proprietary stuff and expensive proprietary parts and are enslaved to one vendor like a sucker sucked into the sales pitch…. the end
Yeah I don’t have my own products! After looking at the swipe and clean though I should have made one. But I can have my own options for now. The full service controller companies are the worse with over priced stuff. But the market is just so small.
Okay so the guy didn’t spend that much 25%. Which is good. But the guy said it came with lots of cool stuff! He also tried to sell me something! (Which I would have purchased if he sent me pictures and wanted less. :) But I also sold him something! LOL :) No he is a nice guy for a Canadian….
Or every car dealership in the whole world should try to hire this guy! I mean the stuff is shiny but $2,400! Sorry $24,000! (It’s worth $2,400 maybe? :) I mean come on total crap doesn’t even start to describe this self serve equipment! He has been trying to sell this crap since at least 12/7/2011 that’s when I got my first laugh. But if the guy got any money that’s good I guess just seems like a ton of crap to me. I should know I had that crap setup what a pos! I mean each bay would be worth $300 for parts = $1500, $200 a vac = $1000 ( if you wanted them if not $50), $300 max a bay for all the used bay crap if its stainless = $1500, $400 for the changer (if it’s really like new), $100 a vendor (if there really nice) = $400 and $300 for the fragrance machine maybe but there isn’t a picture so probably less. That’s $4,700 and you will get a crappy general pump setup that you will wish you never purchased…… trust me! :) This was sold on ebay somehow.

Okay my Dad was talking about something his distributor told him about how “Mars MEI bill acceptors were getting strung and it was so bad they had to put in some sort of timer to turn it off at night”? but there was a solution you could send it to Premier Car Wash Systems in Ga to fix the problem!? They would flash the firmware and it work be “better”.
Well I search around and found at Advanced Car Wash Systems ACWS that they even had a quote from somewhere not on there website but on there facebook page:
MEI Bill Acceptor ALERT!
Today we have been informed by MEI that thieves have found a way to successfully string MEI bill acceptors manufactured before 2011. If you have a bill acceptor(s) with serial numbers starting with 011 and higher they should not have this issue.
If their serial number starts with 520 and lower the bill acceptors will need to be updated with new software. Any MEI bill acceptor manufactured before 2004 or with serial numbers 014 and lower will need to have the board changed.
Please contact the ACWS service center to determine what your acceptor will need.

I can read a little and I heard the weird story and it just sounded like BS. So I called my friend Randy Nix at 1-253-759-3277 where I get all my changer and entry unit repairs to set the record straight. (Not a plug! :) He said a quick call to MEI would have supposed my thought it was a LARGE AMERICAN MISUNDERSTANDING and just WRONG! :) Thank AGAIN Randy
It looks like an Apple convention! No actually the cheaper Kindle Fire was the winner with I think 3 and 1 ipad. One poor girl was slumming it with an itouch….. Loser! All the adults seemed to have iphones < = 4 except for one lady with a Blackberry...... Loser! My iphone crapped out and I was sporting an iphone original! So I was kicking it old school with the worse phone there by far (if my newer iphone was working it would still be the worse phone coming in at a 3gs). But I was "talking to people"...... Loser, I know! Why interact with people when you can just play a game? What is happening to this WORLD!?
Anyone have an iphone 4 I can purchase? I want to play this cool new game!
