As the topic says. My '04 GTI is still really new and I'm not sure if it is ok to wax it yet. When I got the front end of my MK3 repainted the body shop told me to wait 3 months before I wax it. Does this hold true with new cars also?

odds are your car was painted more than 3 months ago. between sitting in Brazil after being built, sitting on a boat, sitting at port, sitting on the truck and sitting at the lot the paint should be more than cured. check the label inside the driver's side door jamb- it has a build date...

Re: (NoDubJustYet)

good thinking, I didn't think to look for that in there. And the car never sat outside on the lot, I got it the day it came off the truck
. I made sure I didn't get a car that had been abused by un-responsible test drives. Even though I do the same thing when I test drive cars.
