You know, the hardest location to get a car dirty would be San Diego. Year Round dryness with occasional rain showers keep it clean. although i would clean yours. its a discrace to scioners everywhere.

I'd die before ever letting my car get that dirty. I usually wash it once a week.

here where I live you cannot help but get your car that dirty if you drive it in the winter
and at 10 bucks for a decent wash in the middle of winter.
well...you can see where this is going?...going to be every other of few weeks

hell it gets so cold here people do not have time to notice dirt on a car when they are running into and out of warm places

lol

I'd have to say Zman is going to win this one by default. Park in a McDonald's parking lot and it would make a clean car look dirty.

Wish I took pics before my wash today, because I would have challenged you.

After almost 2 months without a bath, and the second worst winter (so far) on record, my box was BAD. I only had time to give it a real fast hand wash and then put some "wax as you dry" on it. Rain is coming, and warmer temps cause all that nasty roadside snow melt, and within a few days it'll be filthy again.

Welcome to the Winter of '10............

From last winter, but it regularly ends up looking this way or worse. Thank roads covered in salt, sand & snow and weeks of sub-20deg weather so I can't wash it without it freezing solid.

The 3 feet of snow melting in my gravel driveway creates mud as well. Also, you must not have cats that like to walk in the mud and then sleep on your hood leaving paw prints.

I would clean it but I'm in Beijing.

Here's a really bad pic I took.

You can challenge this!



I washed the box 5 days prior, and the dirt just sticks right on.

@ZMan - My box is in a similar state. Winter will do that. My driveway will be mud for weeks while the snow melts.

I'd post a pic, but I'm 3000 miles away from it until late tonight.

I got an opportunity through my University. I can't upload photos in China. That may be why they aren't working. Facebook and Youtube are blocked.

Yeah, no driving for me for 2 weeks. I miss my box. I have seen a thousand Suzukis (Alto?) but none of them are modified. They don't have a tuner scene in China at all. I think their laws are pretty lax on mods though. I saw a a Focus with the brightest purple headlights I've ever seen.
Over half of the cars have tinted windows all around. Volkswagen is dominating the market here. Toyotas are few and far between.

Mine looked like hell all winter... still isn't super clean, but at least you could tell that the car is dark rather than white.
