    A slew of pricey stuff my wife hates me for.
    I did her windows inside and out week before last. Other than that she'll spin through the touchless, especially since our son gets such a kick out of it. Comes time I'll have to spend plenty of time wrenching on it for all of the general maintenance, so I'm not so worried about washing and waxing her car (really my car since I'm on the title and paid for it).

    Hell no. She wouldn't wash the Vette when it was her daily driver. Now that we traided it in on something else for her she bought a package from the Wash Tub there in San Antonio. I wash the truck and my car.

    I do wash the wife's car. If I didn't it wouldn't get washed. When the G37 S coupe is clean everyone is happy at my house.

    I wash my truck pretty frequently and my wife has a Rav4 that she has maybe washed a handful of times since owning it. I will usually dedicate time to our vehicles as often as it allows (usually mine more than hers). That covers general maintenance, washing/waxing/cleaning, oil changes, and anything else that may pop up. On the other hand, I don't remember the last time I washed clothes, dishes or a toilet. Life has its tradeoffs and I'd rather clean a truck than anything else.
