Clear Coat Empty Clear Coat

Just picked up a new car on Friday. It has a clear coat finish.

Does it make sense to have the finish hard waxed or is that a waste?

TIA

I would say the manufacturers today are using some pretty advanced clear coats. I would only use the wax if you like the look of water droplets beading up. The coating should last many years.

I've never waxed mine, and after 14 years, it is still remarkably shiny looking when washed. I get all kinds of conflicting advice from friends and from the Internet... but I've never waxed a car that I bought new. My personal feeling (NOT an expert on automotive paint) is that waxing is going to degrade the clearcoat over time.

We just installed a new Cato toilet. It is shiny. But I have read that newer toilets have a clear coat to help prevent mineral build up. You must not use a pumice stone, or wet/dry sandpaper. It will remove the coating and you will have to start dealing with buildup. So TOB has started a fascinating thread on earwax, while I am starting one here about toilets. Humor is a must in senior years!

I guess clear coating the inside of ears is out of the question.
