I used a service that brings 4 guys to you and does it by hand w/detail for $65. I have no clue what they used. But I will look into it. They do washes for $25 which is the same as the "Hand Car Wash" (which does a crappy job BTW) by my house with no Armorall.

If you're in San Diego... I will post the site...

I recommend waxing the day you bring it home.

There's a good reason why its shiny, the paint surface is clean. Without protection, the surface becomes contaminated with oxidation and industrial fallout. Wax by itself does not make your car shine, it makes the clean surface shine. Surface contaminants and oxidation will cause the surface to lose its shine. Applying a protectant will help you keep that shine for a longer time without having to do nearly as much 'make up work' after a few months.

Sure, the car will look great for a few months after you buy it. However, you can maintain that look for longer by providing some protection. Of course, not everyone cares this much so I'm sure there are those that will wait some time before they realize how bad their paint has gotten.

i wouldnt even recommend waxing it so soon. theres not really a need in it.itll keep its shine for months after its bought.
Your missing the whole point of waxing. You wax to protect the paint, and give it a good shine. I have known many people who never had to paint there cars or have to deal with oxidation, beacuse of routine waxing.
