I just waxed my car today, after three months from the dealer. I did the following:

1. Dust my car with ORIGINAL CALIFORNIA DUSTER
2. Use detail spray and clean microfiber to remove surface contaminants
3. Clay your car; one panel at a time
4. Apply wax. Gently. Circular motions overlapping each other.
5. Let it haze or dry. Depending on the climate in your area, hazing or drying time varies. I waited about an hour.
6. Get a clean microfiber towel, fold into fourths. Use the first side to "break" the wax from the paint surface. Then, flip the MF towel, buff the area you just "broke"
7. Let the wax stand on your paint for at least 12 hours.
8. Finally, I use MEGUIARS ULTIMATE QUIK DETAILER (after letting the wax bond on your paint for at least 12 hours) to maximize the gloss.
9. Look and stare for a couple of minutes (or more), on your car. Job well done!

I'll post pictures on my next DETAIL. I just went on a road trip to
California, and my xB2 is full of bugs!

Those bugs should wash right off that shiny slick surface you created. That's one of the reasons I use a liquid spray on wax every time it's washed. Makes cleaning soooo much easier.

Yup, it just came right off (bugs)! I used an instant detailer, and the debris are all gone. What I did what I waxed my car, all-around with one(1) coat. However, I added another coat of wax (after 12 hours) on the front end. I knew that this part was going to get the most contaminants. :D
