hey everyone, i just got my 05 nbp tsx last night and i heard it was a good idea to go to a detailer and get a good thick coat of wax since the paint is so thin... any opinions
thanks :thumbsup:

its definitely a good idea, i have a 2005 NBP as well. but dont pay to have it done, the weather is getting better, do it yourself, it'll be that much more gratifying.

Also, you learn a lot about the exterior of your car, by hand waxing it yourself.

Just a suggestion, use the new NXT tech wax by maguire with the booster wax spray immediately after. it works great.

I personally would recommend a nice acrylic for a brand new car. Something along the lines of Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze or Menzerna Full Molecular Jacket (FMJ). They will give you outstanding protection for 4-6+ depending on weather condition and how many coats you layer on. They also give an amazing shine to your paint as well as protect.

I would also suggest doing it yourself as well especially on a new car its pretty simple to wax yourself and there won't be much prep work on the paint. (And this is coming from someone who details professionally for a living)

You want to clay bar it even when new, essential.

I believe in building up with frequent
waxes when a car is new. I can attest that my cars look great at
six years old and I get good resale which make a difference in the next
car you can get, this is my theory, build it up when new.

I don't care for NXT, i've used it, there are other better products.

I haven't used the acrylics, can't say but otherwise everyone loves
Zaino $. I'm using Mothers new FX polymer now and very happy, and the
FX spray wax for a booster is very nice and easy, I was using
liquid glass, it's good but maybe the mothers is better.
