Go to Walmart and buy some Meguiars products. If you haven't done much for your car yet, then you'll need to give it a pretty good cleaning. Although it is new, you should definitely clay bar it before applying any wax. Go to and check out their forums because you'll find out all kinds of important information there. Remember to wash your car in the shade otherwise you're going to end up with spots on your paint finish. Wash it twice, actually. Get it as clean as possible, getting the undersides of the trim and bumpers etc. Once it is washed, dry it really REALLY well. Then use some of Meguiars ultimate quick detailer to pick up any other dirt you missed, then get out the clay bar kit you can buy at Walmart and claybar all painted surfaces and even windows... yes, the windows. If you have any questions on how to use these products, there are very helpful videos and walkthroughs on the meguiars website that can help out tremendously. After you clay bar, apply wax in two thin coats, letting the first dry about an hour before wiping it off. Again, use the help on Those forums and users are a huge help to people just learning how to properly detail a car. Set aside about 6-8 hours for this. If you want to do it right, it's going to take a while, especially if you don't have a dual action polisher and are doing this by hand... like I do. Anyways, good luck and like I said, VISIT THE FORUMS.

Now, if you're leaning towards some more expensives paint protection products like Zaino, and you're willing to spend more cash, check that out. There are countless resources online with professional help and walkthroughs... also check out

Also take a look at a product called Grit Guard and look at forums for the two bucket wash method.
Your favorite tunes and some elbow grease and your ride will shine.
