How to take care of my 'bee...?

I've got my new 'bee...and I want to keep it looking nice as long as possible....
I see the opinions on using clay bars and stuff, but the short version is that I want to wax the car, or even Zaino it....but the benefits are something I wonder about....
I know that the darker colors or the metallic colors all look amazing when waxed, they 'pop' and look a mile deep....it's great....

But I don't know how it would look on the yellow...it's not metallic and already has a shine and stuff....I dont know how much better waxing would make it look....any opinions?

It's just not a color that can look a mile deep.....

and I'm sick of coming out of a store and finding fingerprints on my car!

www.bettercarcare.com-good site full of info, as for the finger prints buy a bottle of quick detailer, any brand will do and carry it in your ride along with a cotton cloth. Been doing this for years.

No NOT wax your car for at least 3 months. Your paint needs to cure.

Check out Meguiars M34 detailer. It is not available in stores - only online. I've been using this for a week now. Great stuff! Read the instructions properly, and only wipe in one direction with no pressure. You'll need cotton microfiber towels too.

But, feel free to use the "in-store" detailer too. It's just not as shiny. Check out this forum:
