Agreed!

I can see myself becoming one of those people that the neighbours think is obsessed with washing their car.
I only picked up my new car last week and I can't bear to see it dirty!

Haha! I'm already one of them people! I can't stand seeing dirt on my car, I wash it religiously every Saturday - without fail -.- I'm even contemplating getting a car cover. I really need to get out more...

Don't worry, the novelty soon wears off, particularly in the winter when it's freezing cold. :wacko:

Before I could drive I used to take the mick out of the guy who lived over the road from me, every Sunday he washed and polished his car even when it looked clean to me! I now live back in that same road, and it's now me washing my car once a week!
The car cover is a bit much though hun :lol:

Same here! I meant washing the car properly I won't do when it's raining and cold, it's acidic birds poo isn't it so it you leave it over time it wears away the paint work

When my car gets pooped on it's not just one or two blobs, it looks like a whole blimin flock have aimed purposely at my clean car and not my neighbours bluey/purple and silver mucky cars which are only parked a couple of feet away!! :angry: Doesn't help the fact there's trees next to our drives but why aim for my car and not theirs!? :(

They like a clean and shiny car to aim at, or it could be that they are like humans and like to watch their reflection as they do rude things. :D
