Then this may really make you crazy. My kids wash moms car 2 times a year. Once in the spring and once in the summer. The wheels in the pictures are stock. Not blacked-out aftermarket wheels. When I had to replace the front tires, the tire guy seemed very disappointed and told my wife that she should really take better care of the wheels. To which my wife replied, "I have less of a chance getting stopped with a dirty car rather than a glistening one"...
WOW!!! Just saying...
I haven't washed my 01 since early July. But, its garage kept under a cover and has only driven about 150 miles since July. Keep it clean!
not often enough. I did just get a nice detail, but they left some of the white residue in a few spots. I used the Turtle Wax Black box on the Jeep and was very pleased with the results. Really liked that it didn't leave a white residue on the trim, obviously. Pretty easy coming off. Enjoyed the product.
I did win Best SRT8 Powered vehicle at the Mopars at the Lake in our local Mopar club's annual meet. Trophy and all so something worked.

I wash the 300 once / week and sometimes every other depending on how dirty it gets. It's silver, so a great color for DD. I typically spend my time with washing, spray detail, tires, interior...so it takes me forever. 4 vehichles and I'm the only one washing them is a constant chore. Seems like I'm always washing a car on the weekend...
The Jeep and Viper are parked in the garage and are always clean. They aren't daily driven, so I only wash them once or twice / month (if that).
The DD Acura 3.2 TL hasn't been washed all year and I don't think I've ever waxed it. It's a light blue / grey color and hides dirt well. It's supposed to rain today...so I'll count that as a wash...LOL! I can't stand a dirty vehicle either, but let it slide for the Ac.
If my jeep moves it gets washed. I walk to work but it's kept in an underground parking garage (lots of dust). Washed a bare minimum of twice a week. Never waxed it to be perfectly honest. That's not something I have ever done but maybe I should!.

I have a new srt8 in Grey it gets dirty fast. Maybe once a week I take it to the car wash and use colinite sealer wax twice a year on it. The brake dust on the front brakes builds up in one hour, nothing I can do.
