Worst car to wash/detail?

It got me thinking today, whilst washing the wife’s 10G Honda Civic I decided that this must be the worst car we’ve ever had to maintain. Whether this be a maintenance wash or home detail.
There are so many nooks and crannies for crap to hide and become a pain to remove, the paint gets “dirty” very quickly. It’s as if it has very open pores and required frequent deep cleaning.
By contrast, it probably takes 50% more time to do than my 5 series.
Both are treated the same and have identical LSPs.

So what is your “Pain in the A$$” car?

My wife’s new Toyota C-HR is a fair bit of work as that also has lots of funky little angles etc and takes way more time than my black 440 I
Jeez, one black car and one white one, what have we done

Civic Type R FK2 is probably the worst for me. The designers just never finished designing

Anything taller than 5’ 6”. I’m only 5’ 4” and struggle with roofs, although sills are never an issue. Problem from being a low profile model.

This one and my previous car of nearly 5 years on exactly the same colour - what have I done!

The wife’s car because it’s always a state. I think she uses it for off road preschool kids birthday parties.

My wife's is the same. No amount of touchless prewashing seems to touch it. Have to go over every inch by hand or it looks like I've not been near it.
