    Hi guys I always give mine a quick wash every other week then let the lads at my gym go over inside and out the other BUT main difrence is these guys have a new sponge/immaculate guarantee if you see a new scratch and can prove it's new (ie piks of the car (I keep one of every panel close up after hearing this)) or any dirt they will re do and t-cut your car for you BUT this comes at a price 17 quid!!!!

    Baring that last post in mind however I went away for a week last week and missed my car dearly so gave her a few treats I sprayed the kidney grills black and spent hours after hours scrubbing polishing and waxing her and loved it never enjoyed washing my car but loved the full attention day I spent on her!

    I would let anyone wash my 318is, they might even improve it...


    BUT the 325, no one touches apart from me. If I scratch it, I have no one else to blame but myself. Im not big into detailing but do try and keep it as clean as I can, im not into polishing the door shuts or anything like that though...
    I just use a bucket and sponge, not even the 2 bucket method, but never really have any swirls even with the new paint.

    Gonna do the car this weekend, but its bloody filthy as ive been using it in the rain this week....


    Each to there own though, I just prefer pulling the engine/diff/brakes apart rather than polishing...

    Not the ones near me - took my car in there one when it was filthy from salt and snow as I hadn't had any time at all to wash it, and they swarmed around the car, climbed on it and dragged the zips of their coats across the paintwork.

    Don't think I'll be going there again in a hurry.

    I've never put mine through an automated jobbie - not only because of all the bad things I've heard they do to your paint, but also because I'm too tight to do so. I have been known to use the easterns every now and then - but ever since I've joined this forum, I have become somewhat anal and will always find the time to do it myself - if when its cold.

    There's no such thing as a quick wash these days (bare minimum is a wash, chamois, glass clean, tyres dressed and wheels sealed!).
