why does my car always have s**t on it?


  S5 Sportback
i don't wash my car that regulary, maybe every few weeks at best.

I use some turtle wash wash and wax whicxh makes it quite shiny, it comes in a green container.

i haven't waxed the car for ages, maybe thats the problem?

It seems everytime i clean it, it still has a lot of little black marks on it form tar or tyres i guess.

If i wash it, clay it and then polish / wax will this make it a lot easer next time? howl ong does a coat of wax last?

Yep, claying it won't protect against future spots, etc but it'll get rid of your current collection.

Give it a nice wash, clay, polish and then a few layers of a decent sealant and wax and it'll be easier to maintain every so often.

Depends what you sue wax or sealant wise.

Maybe no more than 30 days for some Carnuba Waxes, as much as 3-6 months for some Sealants.
