1. Clean/detail at least every other week
2. Vacuum interior every other day
3. Clean and detail the engine bay regularly
4. Check for dead bugs on the front after EVERY drive (and clean if necessary)
5. Clean the dust off the air vents with a cotton swab
6. Clean around the rear M3 badge with a cotton swab
7. Clean the brake dust off the wheels after every drive
8. Clean the wheel barrels at least weekly
9. Clean and polish your muffler cans
10. Clean your exhaust tips after every drive
11. Clean and polish the INSIDE of your exhaust tips regularly
12. Regularly clean the underside of your car with at least a towel and basic cleaning spray of some type
13. Use masking tape to get dust off the felt door opening liner
14. Periodically remove the wheels to clean and detail your brake calipers and suspension components

And please don't tell me to get a life. I have one. It is quite good.
how long is this ordeal? some of us only have weekends.. so for me after an 1.5 hours of cleaning I am ready to drive .. show me some before and after pics.. i'd like to see those clean barrels
