    Thumbs up Car Washing Poll

    After washing both cars again this morning (the Smart doesn't take long), I thought another poll was in order to see whether everyone on here is as diligent as I am in keeping their cars clean.

    Once a week for me (usually); always with a bucket & sponge and never through a car wash!

    My neighbours are not such enthusiastic car washers and always look at me with amazement when I am out there yet again washing the cars.

    I have just done both mine and Larisa,s, damn cold wind here, it made my hands cold. Weather is nice and sunny now, but a bit chilly, but then it is still January.

    I use a Megazar (what ever there name is) drying towel and a soft brush for the wheels. I have a few types of wax but usually use a wash and wax and a wet wax spray at this time of year.

    If I get the chance thouh I'll use a proper wax.

    Normally once a week in the summer (or when its warm - not a fan of the cold). I don't have a lot of time atm and I only wash it by hand so given this and the amount of time needed to do a good job the Vec is looking a bit grim. But my other car, my pride and joy C2 is looking perfect - it has to be as she is up for sale

    Mine got the quick once over today...Just a wash ove the exterior and Wheels. No wax...

    Ideally every week but time doesn't always allow. My full wash routine is 3-4 hours for the exteior alone!
