Here here Phil. Guess he lets it get really dirty so that he can sandpaper it clean once a month.

Re: How often do you wash your car???

one missed: fortnightly....

I wash my car no less than once a fortnight. I reckon my neighbours think I'm obsessive as I'm the only one who regularly washes their car. actually I rarely see anyone else wash their car.....

once every couple/ few of months I do the 'big one': wash, wax n polish & gloss(metal, wheels, glass) ; vacuum inside-out, clean & cream the leather; wipe-down & polish the dash. Basically a full valet.

It's a 3hr+ jobby, but I find it very therapeutic....

Because washing by yourself the car can pollute the soil with the soap.
Normal police don't care of this, have other to do but the local police (usually not intelligent people) must show to the Major they make something during the day, and if they see you washing the car...

Re: How often do you wash your car???

usually 2x a week, more during rainy season. I do this for all my cars, but especially my GTA - she really looks like "the devil with the red dress on" when she is clean and shiny. Find myself looking forward to the end of the day when work is over and I can walk out to the parking lot, anticipating another chance to take in her beauty...

Re: How often do you wash your car???

I wash it 2 or 3 times per week We have a jet wash at work, so I often go into the car park at the end of the day and clean her down with it. I hate having a dirty car especially when I've got customers to drive around. I guess I give a good deep polish it 2 or 3 times per year max.

A Fiat

Whenever it needs washing. That completely depends on the weather, once a week is enough if it stays pretty clean, but over the weekend I washed it twice on Saturday and once on Sunday. I was going to wash it again on Sunday night but thought three times in one weekend was already enough...!
