once a week and only very rarely don't wax it aswell.

every month it gets the full wash/polish/wax along with interior sprucing.

OK, who has put the local asylum seekers?!?!?!

Once a week for me but Josh and myself did get a local gang of asylum seekers to wash our cars just after having them tinted for a few night photos!!

BTW, it wasnt me who voted asylum seekers!!

I usually wash it once a week but haven't washed it in a couple of weeks at mo, seems pointless with the stoopid weather we've had! bring on summer!

Not as often as I should. Once a fortnight at the mo. Sometimes seems pointless coz the next day you get to work it needs washing again.

Try to wash at least some part, if not most of the car every day. It just depends what the weather outside is like! I try to keep the dirt levels minimised to make the washing procedure less time consuming overall. For example if there has been plenty of rain on it then I judiciously wash it down from the roof downwards with copious added water from a bucket or hose-fed brush and stop where the real dirt and possible 'gritty' stuff is. I'll then tackle the lower part another day - at least it makes sense to me!!!

Have done this for over forty years and people have always remarked how nice the car and paintwork looks. Mind you I have in recent years always chosen easy to maintain car colours including the ubiquitous metallic silver etc. No dark colours for me - too much like hard work, that. Alright if you live in California or places with similar forgiving climates.
