    Wash/Wax/Polish tips for my new 12' WRX

    Does anybody have any recomendations as far as taking care of the exterior and interior of my WRX...?

    Keep in mind its black.... and brand new.

    Are there any specific car care products I can purchase that are known as the best around for my car? or is there a review page on the internet that recomends what to use.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

    I was concerned about this.... then i got 2 scratches and and door opened on me within the first week, but i wouldn't see it to be any different for a wrx than any other car....

    from what i have heard though, you don't need to wax it till about 6 months after taking it off the lot

    Why wait 6 months?

    Im sure it doesn't hurt to wax before that haha.

    I recommend sand blasting it with the choicest sand and pebbles thrown up from the roads of the Sierra Nevada. Much more fun than wax.

    People say that the factory curing is different than a respray and they can be done soon (plus there is the transport time etc.). I do not know though.

    See the opticoat thread in the detailing forum.
