I don’t know specifically what brands, but if your coating or wax is worth being called that, the car wash won’t affect it.

Waxes and coatings are not all permanent but should not be affected by other cleaning products so long as the detergent is PH neutral and is not designed to decontaminate, which most car washes are. The other factor is of course the method and the cleaning utensils (washing mitts, drying cloths, etc.)

Soapy Rides has a great reputation though, and was a club favourite for a long time, so I wouldn’t be worried.
