    I wash my wife's car or run it through the car wash for her. She can put up with her car being a lot dirtier than I can stand for my Tacoma to be. Her car is a Kia Rondo so it doesn't really matter.

    Winch, front hitch, step bars, bed extender, bed step, gull-wing toolbox, tailgate lock, security system, cb radio, etc.
    Traditionally, the wife washed & waxed both her vehicles and mine (always fun to watch her wiggle while she worked), with me following along to do the fine details. Today, I do much more since it now takes her so long - getting slow in her old age. :rolleyes:

    No, for two reasons:
    1. It's a lease.
    2. It's a Nissan. :eek:

    Does a bromance count as SO?... Closest person I have to a SO/BF, We do everything together 4 days a week and say "love u" all the time... Everything like a relationship but the lack of sex (guess a married couple is more better to say were like). If so... Then I voted yes, His '10 Camaro is his first interesting car and I'm teaching him what products to use and how to use them. Just last week we did a full detail on his car... As he helps me do my X-Runner as well.
