    We see pictures of MINIs that are all clean and shiny all the time. Thats all well and good, but we use these little bundles of joy and they all get dirty, except for Dark Helmet, the power of The Schwartz is used to repel dirt. Be proud of that gained by doing what MINIs do, show off the dirt and patina you bravely earned on that road-trip, group drive or daily runnings around...

    The example below shows the proudly earned patina of a lot of following to close on tar and chip roads during group drives, a few track days and maybe one or two agricultural excursions.

    Just waiting for Chuck to post mine... The one time I showed up for donuts and didn't wash her.

    Nathan it's hard to spot the dirt through all those rock chips.

    I try very hard to keep mine clean, but sometimes things just seem to conspire against me. Today my MINI has a fine coating of dirt that will most likely remain until my back pain subsides.

    My wheels are freaking dirty. The whole care really is, but the front wheels are slowly turning black, lol.

    My car is dirty, but my windshield is filthy and I'm going to leave it that way so that Chuck can capture it in all of its filthy glory at TH on Saturday.

    Sounds like I have lots of work to do with my camera. No fair driving down dirt roads to win the title dirtiest MINI.
