: : Taking delivery of my '00 540ia orient blue/grey tomorrow!! Of course they offered all of these options to add on like paint protection, leather protection, lo-jack, etc. Do these cars really come from the factory without a coat of wax? That is what I was told which sounds ludicrous. Is this paint protection a total sham or what? They want about $600 just for the paint and say you never have to wax again. I'm very used to taking care of my paint meticulously, so I declined everything except window tint. Any comments? Thanks.
My understanding from old posts is that new 'water-based' paints don't need to 'cure' from the factory and can be washed, waxed etc. right away. Does anybody know FOR SURE, because I would like to add the X-Pel invisible shield up front ASAP.
