New Car wax? What to start with

Ok so my girl got a new 2012 impreza and I want to wax it for her. I always use a clay, polish, and carnuba. Being that the car is new and it has some weird clear coat wax/protectant on it. Which type of wax should I use for the first time? I was thinking just a coat of polish and a carnuba for protectant. What do yall think

Here is the new ride

Easy wins with me:

1. Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Wax
2. Duragloss Aquawax
3. CSI Q-7 Wax (which we sell).

Wipe on, wipe off, no staining. $8-$10 a bottle.

Cheers

some dealerships will clay and wax your car before its delievered to you. Some dont. It wont hurt to do it after you bring it home. Dont pay the extra for sealants and all that stuff. Its cheaper to do it all yourself.
