So last Friday I finally washed my 07 C230 after (forgive me) 3 and a half months. There were quite a few baked-on bug guts and the dirt/dust had really clouded up the car to say the least. Brake dust on the wheels was sheer insanity. I was using Optimum No Rinse as I'd heard some good-to-great reviews about it, but was still a bit skeptical as the idea of a no-rinse wash defied logic (for me anyways). I don't have any pictures of the process or before and afters, but let me tell you that the guys behind ONR really have an amazing product out there. All I did was give the car a quick rinse at the local coin-op car wash, and then use the ONR with a car wash mitt, dunking it in a separate water bucket to clean it off before using more ONR solution, wiping it off the car with auto detailing cloths from Costco. I had mixed in 4 capfuls of the solution into 2 gallons of water (twice the capful amount what the bottle recommends). The result of the one-hour effort with ONR was a car that looked like it had never been dirty. I highly recommend this stuff to anyone who can't do a traditional wash, or wants to maintain their car between washes. I may be preaching to the choir on that, but I just wanted to share my experience with it for the rest of us newbies :thumbsup: .

You went 3.5 months without washing your car? Mercedes is going to come repo your car and find another owner who actually cares about it and won't neglect it. You committed a violation of code 9, section 3, paragraph 69 of the 2007 edition of the Mercedes Bill Of Rights.

I've actually considered committing hari-kiri because I went so long without washing it. Despite what the interval suggests, I do love my car and I'm never going to go anywhere near as long without washing it, inside or out.
