during the winter i try and do it at least once every two weeks. During the fall and spring, I try and do it once a week, and during the summer (especially at my beach house) i try and do it every other day

i definitely have been caught washing my car the next day... in fact, I was once yelled at by my brother cause he caught me washing it after doing so the day before and the day before that lol

As often as possible.

Winter....I will wash and wax her if the roads will be clean and dry for at least 2 days.

Summer.....a couple times a week.

Oh, that was with my E36 black coupe....but now that I've got a Titanium Silver, I still do the same....

Once a week AT LEAST, but I'll use a microfiber cloth and get all the dust off and clean the rims like every day or so. it keeps it cleaner for WAAAY longer

Once a week, faithfully. If I get bird crap, or tar, the next day so it doesn't eat up the paint.

Now the real important question...

How many times have your neighbors giving you these great one liners.....

"Didn't you just wash you car last week?"

"Hey, you want to come over here and do mine next!"

"You're going to wash the paint off that car"


"Every time I come over your waxing that thing"


" The drive thru car is wash is only $4.00"


I laughed the first time, but the hundred or so times after that, not so much.
