Whats the point if you drive it every day? Its been raining most days since november so all you have to do is a few miles and its mucky again. My neighbour washes his car every other day and I just laugh and think spend some time with ya kids or take your wife out for a meal or something Rasp:
Of course in the summer the van gets a good wash every week T:

Can't remember the last time I personally washed mine, even at this time of the year at least once a week for the cost of £3 at the hand car wash down the road, gets all that horrible salt from off my wheels and under the arches!!

Would never let anyone else wash my van , you gotta be nuts if you take em down one of these hand car washes,
I was mine every week if I can, youve got to get the salt and off in the winter even if it's just a quick jet wash

You are right! The jet washes they use are way too powerful

mine gets washed at least a couple of times a week, but we do spend a lot of time down the beach.

Last time I washed my van was about 18 months ago & it's not dirty now (I go to the hand carwash down the road :))
you let them wash your van :( i would not let them jet wash my mountain bike :eek:

they put TFR acid all over the lower half removing all the waxes and protection then wash it with an old sponge full of god knows what LOL: they do more damage than good :*

Well said, it is a pain and only lasts a day or so depending on the rain but I keeps the salt and grime off
My van came full of swirl marks from new it took a machine buff and
Polish to get them out then a wolf body wrap to protect it.
A lot of money and it needs looking after.
