It may be the type of wax they use, pure carnuba ithink is suppose
to let the paint still breathe.
But, if it's buffed and polished properly, a wax won't make it look
any better. Most use it to make up for an incomplete buff job.
there's no reason to wax new paint if done right, so why
not wait just to be safe.
