I live by the sea, and the seagulls seem to store it all up specifically for my car. I can't believe that they can fly whilst carrying that much! As a result my car gets the minimum of a rinse-off once a week.

I voted every 2 weeks as that is the max between washes. Quite often it will be weekly

Mine gets washed daily. No option for that?

Its a bit like "how often do you get your hair cut" and when it needs it is the answer to that.

My car never really gets dirty

Does paying someone else to wash it every 2 weeks count as never as far as "How often do "I" wash my car"!!!!

probably about every 3 weeks or before something like a long drive or a MB meet may trigger me to do it. i like to drive long distances with a clean car to start with if i can, dont know why but i prefer it.

i notice ST4 has put his vote in; 1 hit for "never" hehe

The W124 has not been washed since I bought it two years ago.

The Volvo not for four years.

I'm assuming you guys actually get hands on and do it yourselves, right? Over here, people actually work at car washes and we get it done. I more or less get it done once a month, even if it does get rainy. I'm a lax bloke though, all the other Merc owners I know get it done weekly minimum. I couldn't be arsed.

I do live by the sea side, though too high up to be affected by salt and sand, the gulls like the V70R better than the MB though they are both the same colour
