Aqua Deluxe Towel for me, although I have just got a wet vac that does blow too.. might give it a go with that

Couple of things to consider. You need a fair bit of blast to clear water away plus if you use the same tube as the suction, it is possible you may blow dirt onto the car. Just in case you had not thought or known about it.

I tend to rinse with open hose water, and then blow dry with warm air to finish. Touchless dry, works really well on a well protected car.

I would not say a towel is my preferred choice if I could afford it may go for a Di and/or blower
