My neighbors all probably think I am crazy, but I wash my car AT LEAST once per week. I wax the entire thing about every month and a half, and usually give a touch-up wax to the trunk, roof, and hood every other week. There is nothing like a clean BMW, and I like to keep mine that way. What about the rest of you?

well.. i washed it last week. But before that i hadnt for 3 months. And I didnt wash it because it wasnt dirty. In fact i had been mudding in it multiple times and had mud caked on the roof. Now i know what your thinking "this is sacrilage" but alas e30s make good rally and mudding rovers. I had to push a s10 out cause he got stuck. LoL The reason i washed is cause one night (it was actually valentines night) i was mudding (by myself, lonely valentines) and I knocked 2 wheels off the rims. I put on the spare but that went flat too. So i had to wash it to take it over to sams so they could fix the tires and not ask questions.... Anyway i was out till 3 in the morning and that was my worst valentines ever.



How the hell did i turn this into a valentines story? ghead

should not wax your car that often.... According to Maguiar's professionals you only need do a complete wax setup 2 times a year if you life in an area where there are multi-climates. I.e. Michigan, summer/winter with snow..
