Whats the the dirtiest you car has been?

Okay, for New Years I happened to know where all the license checks were, so I took alternate routes. When I got home it looked like I took the civic mud slinging!! I mean I had mud caked up in the fenderwells and the bad part is I didn't even go off road. Well I had to wash the whole car twice, each rim twice and now I even see spots that I missed At least now its all sparkly again [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG] I guess this is the dirtiest it has been, how dirty has your's been?

Last winter I never washed mine for about 5 months, it looked white from all the road salt. I have a winter car now so I don't have to worry about it.

well it was in the summer when i was on a road trip in eastern washington, i was driving at night to some hick town to get a beer. i was driving by some salt lake or mineral lake or something, some type of gnat spawning grounds. the road was filled with gnats, looked like a blizzard and i drove through these guys for 20 miles. in the morning when i saw my car it was orange, and its normally white. i used two containers of the bug&tar remover wipes to get the bugs off.

my car is rarely dirty.. though the worse its ever been was 3 hours after I washed it . The day started out just cloudy and I wanted to get my car washed before I ran other errands .. after washing my car I picked up my girlfriend and we drove out to her favorite resturant which is the only one in the area and its about 30 miles away. So anyhow the clouds grew grey the rain came pouring and we had to go through a construction zone and I was behing dump truck several times.... I was so pissed.. so I washed it myself the next day glazed and waxed and it stayed clean for a long time after that.. I have a black one too.

Your car is nice, but it's funny that your signature says "Cleanest 7th gen in town" kinda contradictory...

Mark,
It usually is the cleanest. I havent had time to get it detailed. I think this weekend I am going to bring it to the shop I used to work at to have it done. I would love to just bring it to a car wash but im not sure if I can with the bumper and the rims on the car.

I know, I'm just giving you a hard time, there is nothing wrong with a dirty car, I haven't washed mine in like 3 weeks cause the weather has been rainy and cold, and it's not very fun to wash cars in that kind of weather as you know. My girlfriend's house has a warm water hose...but to use I have to wash her mom's porsche along with my car...

Wow. I don't feel so badly now. My car is black so the salt stands out more, but it's certainly not THAT dirty. We had rain from Friday -> Monday morning so a lot of the salt got washed off.

I feel your pain. I used to wash my car every Saturday morning. Sometimes more, but since the winter hit I've only been able to wash it maybe two or three times. The spring isn't coming quickly enough. I need to wash my car.
