I understand it's a hobby (or profession) for some but my days of worrying about every nick or scratch are just about over. The first year it was still pretty pristine but then time moved on. I wash it by hand once a week and see new marks once in a while - and nobody else touches or drives the car. Somehow scratches are on the rim or on the aero kit when nobody else could've gotten near it. It's just the nature of actually driving the car around. I'm done spending more than an hour each week. The car is over 4 years old and these things are bound to happen. Swirl marks - I use a wash mitt and microfiber cloths - but I'm not going to put these things in the wash and use 2 buckets each time only to have it happen anyway. Some people don't have the time to wash their own car to begin with.
