Probably once in every third time for me, but it's by no means a hard and fast rule. Depends on time and what sort of mood I'm in and, not least, what the weather conditions the car's been driven in. As I love my detailing, I don't mind spending a bit of extra time to refresh the trim with some dressing, post wash (as said, if circumstances and mood permit), even though to the casual eye it probably looks like it doesn't need it.

Interesting reading about products with high longevity as I'm not sure how the OCD detailer in me would get on with those? I'm not sure I'd want something that, once applied, didn't need re-doing for ages? My detailing 'itch' wouldn't get scratched lol! That said, naturally I understand how these kinds of products suit others' needs.

I guess this opens out to the wider detailing product spectrum and, for me at least, it's why I've never go on board with the uber long-lasting sealants and nano coatings because detailing my car is a hobby (of sorts), so more sacrificial coatings suit me better so I refresh and replenish (and therefore scratch my itch).

I'm a Solution Finish user as well. Applied 3 months ago to greying trim on my 16yo Ford Focus. Still looking good. I have no idea when it will need re-applying. That 15ml bottle is going to last a long time!

Usually apply a very light, even, coat after every wash, especially on the scuttle panel and roof rails.
