How many times do you polish your car in a year?

First polish of the year! so far..

My product of choice is Bilt Hamber double speed wax which I am on my third tub since using it on my car for over 2 years now and the shine is still showroom finish.

I would say I polish about 7 times a year which gives a great mirrored shine and beads well. Helped by washing my car once a week.

So it got me thinking 'how times do you really need to polish a year to keep the shine'

Is 7 to much?

You're taking about waxing my good man...polishing is about refining the finish of the paint after paint correction (compounding).

Most natural carnuba waxes typically only last a few of months, so around 4/5 times a year.

Well summed up, and I agree 4/5 times a year.

Once to twice a year for me. Tip I found on youtube was after the car is waxed use a quick detailer to dry the car after you wash it in the future and the quick detailer protects the wax adding a layer of 'skin' is what he called it. My wax lasts for at least 7 months using that tip

Good tip ! - I use Angelwax QED spray after a polishing LOL (sorry waxing).

But I see my 6+ waxing a year is excessive, so going to knock this down to 4.
