Looks clean to me, I haven't washed my 640d for about 3 months or so.

Good job I like cleaning mine really! It looks lovely at the moment, just until I drive it tomorrow

Wanted black but silver seems to look cleaner longer. Downside, never looks as jaw droppingly shiney as a black car no matter how much i machine polish it!

Couldn't agree more, my last one was silver and you don't get as much satisfaction from polishing it as you would a dark colour.

It has been confiscated, or at least liberated from my immediate ownership
My wife has taken to it and prefers it to be available for her immediate use when I am away (which is quite regularly). Her liking for the car, however, does not stretch to cleaning it, I shall return to a 640 with chewing gum in the cubby holes and litter festooning the interior..... As well as a dirty unwashed exterior.

Mine is the same, I live out in the country so at the moment the car stays clean for about 20 minutes after a wash.

I can't be bothered to wash it at this time of the year either which doesn't help either.
