Re: How often do you wash your car?

I've voted once a week but it's usually twice

Gave her a real good clean up today, the full monty apart from waxing, cleaned and fed the leather too, looking pretty fine and nowhere near her real age

When I can find both the motivation, and the time, so about once a month

Once a week providing it isn't raining/snowing so I suppose my car has about 40 coats of wax on it!

Likewise...just as you have done the third, the first is dirty again!

Re: How often do you wash your car?

probably once a week on average depending on the weather/state of the car.

Re: How often do you wash your car?

Probably fortnightly in the winter, weekly in the summer. But really, it should be the otherway around, washing all that salty mud out from under the arches..

Re: How often do you wash your car?

Once a week depending on the weather and I always do it myself, never use a car wash or the local Polish guys.

Valet once a year (March/April) just to get the worst of the winter grime off
