I usually don't set a time. I've only washed my car twice since I bought and brought it home in May. It hasn't gotten very dirty since we've had a heat wave and very little rain here. But, this weekend so far has been pretty rainy, and I think it'll be time again for a wash soon.

Bella...you lucky girl! My 545 (tiSilver) was only washed every 2 or 3 weeks unless it rained and got really dirty sooner. My black car needs it once a week and that's after car dusting lightly every night!! uggggg

every 2 weeks. waxing and washing take too much time to do every week.

I was my car once or twice a week depending on my schedule. I just hate having a dirty car...it kills me. I like my car to be sparkly! I also park outside alot, so my car gets covered in all sorts of dust and pollen which drives me nuts aswell!!! :-)

It's dirty right now...probably wash it tomorrow!!

With the amount of rainy days we get here in Scotland my car could do with a wash practically every day!!!!!! But I manage to contain myself to at least once a week - sometimes twice. Polishing has to be fitted in whenever the weather is nice at the weekends! Managed well so far though - the weather has been kind!
