I don't see any benefit to putting wax on new paint,
Even one that is ok for fresh paint.
If it makes the freshly buffed paint look any better
then you need to learn how to buff and polish correctly.

bugs and bird poop come off easier if you've polished it. easier to clean and care for since everything is on the canuba. soap and water and go again. i keep the front of my brides car polished with it grille , headlights and all.
