I've caught it..

... The "detail bug." It's expensive but, nothing beats walking to your car and saying "damn that thing looks sexy!" Now if I only had the resources to do a full correction and the dinero to get my bumpers and hood re-painted.

Wait until you've spent more money on detailing supplies than mods.

I'd imagine I would be the same way with my car if it wasn't a daily driver. I mean, I wash, wax, polish, etc. But, with it being driven everyday, it simply doesn't last. If my next Stang is garage kept I will probably be obsessive about detailing it.

It is a pain trying to keep it clean. Especially the interior when you tote passengers around. I also have a bad habit of eating in my car which results in me spilling shit everywhere

I drive my car everyday in the summer. I'm so obsessed that before I put my car up for storage, I detail it. Then, when I get bored in the winter, I take the cover off and detail it again, for some reason.

Then in the summer, I detail it every couple days. I do paint correction once a month because i'm really picky about my swirls. And yes, my clear coat should be gone in a years worth of time
