Winter Time Cleaning

It has been a while since I actually cared about the car I was driving. Winter time is really making it difficult to keep the car clean. How are you guys dealing with the winter time snow/salt and dirt? Or are you just storing the car?
I'm thinking about signing up for a deal at a local touchless carwash. Doesn't seem like a bad deal around $20-$30 per month for 1 wash per day not tied to a car. Could rinse my car off every night before putting it in the garage :) or the whole family could use it.
Still on the fence about how I feel about even a touchless carwash but the salt seems worse to leave on the car.

It wouldn't have been a problem when I was younger I would just store cars keeping them pristine and driving junk in any kind of bad weather. I've changed that mentality and I'm tired of giving the next owner a brand new car after paying all that money and not really enjoying it.
I think that's one of the main reasons I selected the S3 it's really great at everything. So I can enjoy it in any weather, going to work or ripping through some mountain roads.
I can't believe how many cars I've owned where I never wore out a set of brakes or tires.

We don't get that much snow in OK, but when it does I'm usually out there hosing underneath the car after wards. Usually just drive it up on rhino ramps. The problem with those "all you can wash" places is that their brushes are filthy, I would never want to chance getting my expensive paint scratched up.

The unlimited place I'm looking at is touchless. It just sprays foam on the car then does a high pressure rinse so I wouldn't have to worry about dirty equipment.
