I think these are a bit of a mixed remedy. As has been pointed out, you can't see how much it's taking off until you get a good look under it, and given it's spraying up it may just be pushing the dirt and grit around.

If it's wet out, and the underside is wet anyway, it may be about effective as an impact parachute. Maybe use it once every so often. Anyone thinking of one, don't make the mistake of not bothering to under seal the car first

If you have your own pressure washer you can do a simple test yourself after you drive on salty roads.

No soap, set pressure to around that of the chassis sprayer and go over the side of the car, and let it dry itself - as the under chassis wash would do.

Then run your finger over the paint and taste if there's salt still there (it's not going to kill you ). Unless you sponge the surface as well, salt is very difficult to remove with water jet alone.
"Understeer" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car. "Oversteer" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car. "Horsepower" is how fast you hit the fence. "Torque" is how far you take the fence with you.

Organized Religion is like Organized Crime; it preys on peoplesí weakness, generates huge profits for its operators, and is almost impossible to eradicate.
