I am happy yet envious to see that you cater 40 minutes every day to clean your car. But I am afraid if others have the luxury of such time or access to basic facilities like a water tap connection near parking. I own a black safari and I am posted in one of the most polluted towns in India with no access of a shaded parking zone or a water connection downstairs. The traffic sense out here is in a shit state with no responsibility. People are drunk once the clock hits 1800hrs and ram into parked vehicles beside the road. Had 2 such encounters in 3 weeks where people have hit my car parked aside.
I feel so bad looking at my vehicle especially after I spent about 10K last month getting all the exterior scratches removed and now I am left with a huge dent on the tailgate plus broken bumper and lots of scratches. I am just wondering what would be the future like in this case.
I seriously feel it's a boon to have access to basic facilities like an electric supply, running water connection and of course a little more time.

I usually start cleaning my car at 6am and wind it off by 6:40 after which spend about 45 min's exercising, have my coffee with a news paper in hand and then get ready to head to my bank.. I have a shaded parking at my flat and cellar parking at my bank and hence am lucky to keep my car shining and safe..

The only possible way to maintain a black car is to regularly wash,wax and polish if required. Never let a scratch or dent to fall on it since the whole beauty will be lost with the smallest of scratch.
However , if maintained well, there is no other color as royal ad the jet black
( That is purely my personal opinion. )
