Depending on the weather my 13 dbcb gets washed at least 1-2 times a week. Sometimes more. I'm on a $36 a month charge for their Premium washes and I can run it through twice per day if I want to. The Premium wash on its own is $16 so it's a no brainer for me and my wife's car. Best $72 a month, for both our vehicles, I ever spent. Especially, since both of our cars are black. Black is a mofo to keep looking clean. lol

I give my truck a rinse once every 2 weeks or so, and give it a real soap wash once a month. I haven't gotten around to waxing it since it was purchased back in early November.

Pollen is on an assault here so I had to rinse it this past weekend. No point in washing yet, because 2 hours later and there is already pollen accumulating again. Good thing all that rain came through and hopefully hosed out majority of the trees/plants

I take it in for a wash at the dealer once a month or so. They do a reasonably good job.

Still trying to figure out how to fit it into my shower stall!

...I actually let the dealer handle it whenever it goes in for an oil change - so maybe twice a year. Otherwise, Mother Nature can just get off her fat arse and rain on the damn thing! I contribute by not driving, thus, it gets washed.

I think the real question is how many burger wrappers can you stuff behind the seat - THAT needs a poll...!

I like to wash it once a week (if it isn't going to rain the day after...) and wax every 3 months. I give it a good interior and close detailing job every other time I wash.

I actually really like cleaning it because I get to listen to music and not think about other stuff.

Plus, I love the way my truck looks like this:
