With regard to washing the  exterior of the DMC, can you go thru a 
regular car wash or should you use  stainless steel cleaner? What's the 
best way to wash  it?

I'd either stick to a "touchless" car wash or do it by hand - I had a  
so-called "brushless" car wash at a reputable major brand gas station (the Mobil  on 
the 6000 block of US 192 in Kissimmee, Florida, by the entry road to  
Celebration) rip both mirrors right off of the car last year!  The whirling  strips 
of soft cloth that supposedly are softer than old style bristle brushes  wraped 
right around the mirrors on contact and pulled them right off of the  doors.  
The manager didn't seem all that surprised, and already had an  insurance 
claim proceedure in place, so it must happen fairly often.   To their credit, 
they did, as promised, later reimburse me for the full cost  (almost $700) of 
having both mirrors properly replaced with original NOS parts  & labor by DMC 
Florida.  Still, it's a good thing that I couldn't open  the doors to get out of 
the car for nearly three minutes while the wash cycle  finished - that gave me 
a bit of time to calm down somewhat or I might well be  in prison right now 
for murder...
