Regular seasonal detailing in conjunction with proper maintenance washes is the best way to keep up on your vehicles appearance. My car has 55k miles on it and has been daily driven in multiple winters now.

Every spring I make it a point to do a full detail to get rid of salt, as well as swirls brought on by the drying process after touchless washes. Yes touchless washes still hurt the clear coat due to chemicals and the drying process. Sometimes in the dead of winter you have no choice but to go in.

In the fall, I again like to remove any contaminants with clay as well as any new markings brought on by careful hand washing throughout the summer. I then add a protective coating to the paint and wheels. Last fall I did a ceramic coating, but any sealant and wax will protect the vehicle.

Below is a picture of my car freshly washed with a no rinse wash, two bucket method, and dried with a detail spray. Overall this took me 1 hour to achieve a freshly detailed appearance.

I detailed this Mercedes just last summer. Since then it has been cleaned regularly by a popular local handwash. Needless to say it needed some TLC again. Here's a photo of the trunk lid before and after, and customers photo.

Need to watch out for those washes...and apparently not just the automatics. I clean all cars with a no rinse wash and a two bucket method. No hose other than cleaning the engine bay and wheels/tires. I can pay extra attention to what's coming between the wash mit and your paint, and your vehicle isn't dripping water as you drive off down the road.

Ceramic coating. After a week of rain, I can achieve a freshly clayed and waxed looked with just a 30 minute wash. No hard to remove road debris, water spots, or other contaminants. In fact the car barely stays wet long enough to wash.

Ceramic coating applied after clay bar and polish on my car. I have been driving the car for a few days since and it still looks freshly washed with a very deep gloss. The clarity on the windows is amazing. I am actually looking forward to rain to see the water protection.
