If it's a touchless car wash you will be fine.

Spider things? As long as it doesn't touch your vehicle you'll be ok. If you do manage to find one with the brush devices stay away as it will eat your antenna.

I have gone through a tone of those. Probably a hundred times, only one of which it screwed up my antenna, never on my truck though.

I'd be more concerned about the finish than the light tabs.

my truck went thru a dealer's carwash and it broke a light on the front, and they bought me a new set (they were cheap walmart specials). The light tab itself was fine
