Just wondering how many times a week people wash their cars.I wash mine once a fortnight.Wash the wheels every week though due to the brake dust.Does this mean I have an obsessive compulsive disorder?lol.:S
 
  Lots of Alfas

I doubt it, people wash there cars more frequently than that! I try to wash mine once a week without fail.

mine gets washed and waxed fully once a week. Sometimes i'll do it mid week but just a wash.

It depends on how busy i am at work, at the moment i haven't cleaned her for about a month, because i'm working 6 day weeks and the last thing i want to do on my only day off is clean the car.

Weekly wash, wax every 3-4 weeks.

Dan, do you think necessary to wax everytime you wash? I don't think it adds anything personally.

I don't do the inside as often as I should though...
 
Yay im normal peeps take the piss outta me cos my car is always so clean, yep have also been known to have done it 3 times in one week :eek: lol now atleast once if not twice with full wax and hover every 2 weeks and clay every month:rasp: I have an OCD and Proud, lets face it you could have a lot worse OCD's, don't worrie bout it mate!

I do mine once a week, unless it's pissing down with rain, then she has to wait a bit longer for her bath :eek:

I have always kept my car clean.Even when I used to drive old bangers when I first started driving.

What area are you based? I might be requiring someone to PC my Clio and maybe a Alfa GTV aswel.

You're slacking Rich, thought you would have done it last night!

Mine might get done in about 3 weeks time if I can be bothered, got Cadwell and Brands inbetween so not much point!

I would like to know who had the silver Clio parked right on the end by the slope on Sat, was so shiny! will get a pic later.

Normally once a week, haven't washed it for about a month now though, she's been neglected because my folks are re-doing the front of their house so my washing spot is currently unavailable!
 
  RB 200 Cup!
usually clean it once every few months - i know im very bad. Only reason i cleaned it on saturday was for the east anglia meet and i fort id better make the effort - lol!
 
  BMW E46 330i Touring
All done and looking better for it. Can definitely notice I haven't topped up the wax recently though, poor run-off, dirt marks harder to wash off and even drying wasn't as easy. Think I'll have to get some more layers on there soon...
 
  A4 Avant & R52 S
if the weathers nice, i wash mine once a week, normally on a sunday. (unless i've got something else to do)
If i can't be arsed to wash the car, i at least try to make the effort & clean the brake dust off the wheels, so they don't get any worse!
 
I'm letting the side down, once every two weeks if Im lucky

although I'm ordering a PC tonight and some scratch X, getting the wheels refurbed and then starting a regime to try to wash once a week lol
