This is true... The key in keeping a good car is really the maintaining part. The more you can avoid touching it, the better off. Once you get a good detail to remove swirls and light scratches, leave it alone for a while unless you absolutely need to wash it again.
Now that I just finished mine, it will be in the garage unless I'm driving it! Sure, it'll need a washing, but not for a while hopefully
I'm hoping the sealant I put on repels most of the nasty stuff
