Thats a misguided way of thinking. a jet wash is pushing as powerfully as the distance it is being held from the car.the added pressure behind a jet wash is what turns identifying a slight trickle in the rain easy to find.also on anycar whether cabriolet or not is designed and tested to far higher pressure than an average jet wash. with common sense on the distance held this is a tried a tested method we've used in the bodyshop i work in for 6 years if anything the added pressure save lots of time. at the end of the day its up to you but results dont lie like i say bit of common sense 3-4 feet away someone in the car and i think you find it no probs.
