BH has already stated on this site to put it on dry. No point going over old ground as it's been discussed countless times on here. Whatever works for you.

No, or at least no more than a lambs wool mitt. Scratches/marring comes from poor technique more than anything else.

It's not a great idea to wax your windows/windscreen and I'd avoid getting it on your rubber trim too.

There is an argument that this can happen. I'd rather by moving dirt that's been softened and loosened from the surface by a pre-wash chemical than by blasting it via a pw on it's own.
