    Mine gets washed every other day if I have chance. Having said that I use a very mild snow foam mixture so no need to get sponge out and this time of year is nice and easy!

    I also use Collonite 476s wax and it's brilliant, 2 coats last about 8 months altho I tend to di it every 2 months!lol Works on the wheels too, so all you have to do is pressure wash them, no need to scrub!
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

    Wash mine every week when i can. When i had the vauxhall i never washed it because i hated it for the whole 2 months we had it. Now we got the 1 series it will get washed every week with the compact.

    Mine gets washed once a week in the summer without fail - same in the winter as well if the weather allows. Waxed either every other week at the mo, or once a month in the winter.

    At the mo, it has been waxed pretty regularly because I have been using up my freebie Megs Gold class wax that I got with my Evo sub (I can then justify buying some Collnite 476). Even if it is just a wash and chammy, I will still dress the tyres and seal the alloys. Since becomming a member of this forum, I have ended up with cleaning OCD!

    Snow foam it generally 2 times a week. I mean if you have ever used Snow foam its so much fun you just cant stop yourself if you have time

    It then has bucket wash on the friday most of the time. Then just give it and Polish and wax every 2 months or so.
