Whenever it's dirty is a good rule of thumb.

Only had mine for a month and the 1st 3 weeks I had to clean it everyday because of the break dust was HORRIBLE. Now that i installed the Hawk Ceramic Pads I get very very minimal break dust and can get away with a quick wash every couple of days.

I only wash it once a month but I spray it down with detail spray once or twice a week to keep the dust and pollen off. I polish it every 3 months with Adams.

When I first saw the title of this thread, I thought it said, "How often do you guys wash your HAIR"....

I think I've been posting too long today, my brain is tired....

Well, I have to wash mine about everyother day. My 2SS Red Jewel Tintcoat is almost as bad as Black. Really. Even the finest of dust seems to just coat the car hours after I have washed it. Even when I put it into the garage after washing it. I live in the country. But dust/polen in everywere. Bums me out... I also use Meguiars Quik Detailer spray for the other times when it just needs a little sprucing up...

I only washed mine 3 times since I got it back in August 2009 and my Camaro is always spotless because it is a garage king not queen.

Depends on how dirty it is. If it is just a little dirty from pollen or fog, I'll just use the Zaino detail spray.
