Re:


Afraid that after 7.5 years my exy still goes thru the auto car wash (on ultimate/extreme etc) every 2 weeks, or every visit to town. Still looks reasonable if you don't count the dings & scrapes & stone chips.

Edit 13/03/13 - last trip to town the car wash manager kindly spent about 15minutes with the guerney to remove the thick layer of mud I acquired just getting there. emoticon

Re: Re:


Rarely. I don't have a convenient hose.

When absolutely filthy, I've occasionally hosed (with rainwater from the tank) and used a soft brush to shift the road grime.
(Never used detergent or waxed.)

Otherwise, if it looks like rain and the white car looks a bit grubby, then I'll park it outside and let the downpour do its thing.

Note: 4 years on, there are no swirl marks on the original paint. emoticon

Edit: Naturally any original waxing type application has long worn off so water no longer "beads". Now it flows. No drama.
