Should I Polish and Wax every wash?

I Have a black 07 M35 and the challenges of keeping it clean can become overwhelming but I accept the challenge. My question is after each wash (once a week) should I always polish and wax or is it something to do a few times a year? Thanks.

You only need to polish and wax a few times a year once every 4 to 6 months is good

I'll copy my answer over here, to help keep things together...

- You would follow up the wash (or while drying) with a spray of Ultimate Quick Wax.

- When the UQW seems to be dragging, hard to apply, or your water is just not running or the car well at all, you would consider when to re-detail.

Another option, (and I alternate as needed), is to use Ultimate Wash and Wax for the 'weekly' washes, when I dont have time to worry about UQW after. So I keep a regular wash like Gold Class for when detailing or spray waxing after, and UW&W for when in a hurry.

Thanks for the info. So last week I clayed the car and waxed it. This weekend should I just wash, polish since I didnt yet and just spray wax?
