I washed my previous new cars only once or twice! Then, after the first month or so, I'd have someone else wash them.
I've had my MINI
for four months already, and I have been washing it myself (once a week) since then! I've taken it to the car-wash only twice, and only because I really had no time to wash it myself!
I had a couple of collector cars back in the early nineties, and I wasn't as careful with them as I am with my new MINI Cooper
! I really liked those cars, but not nearly as much as I love
