Hey everyone,

Proud new owner of a 2016 NX 200t F Sport. Black with red interior.

This is my first Lexus so I'm not familiar with the paint. Looking to the community experts for advice on maintaining a deep, glossy finish. 

What brand of wax do you use and how often do you apply?  I live in PA so winters can be brutal. 

Thanks in advance. 

Paul

Hi Paul...welcome to the Forum and also to the wonderful world of Lexus !

Sorry, not sure what particular wax to recommend but I'm sure there are some members out there that have a preference.

Cheers  Trevor

I have always used New Finish (orange bottle). Works great for a deep shine and lasts a long time.

I really like Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0.   It's extremely easy to use and produces a brilliant shine.  I apply on my other cars every three months or so and am sure it could go longer, but I really enjoy waxing.  And yes,  NXT for our NX200t :-)

      Hi There,
      I recently purchased a 2013 IS 250 and have been reading up on proper detailing techniques: wash, claying, wax, wheel care, leather, etc. For those interested, I have found www.autogeek.net to be a fantastic resource though you will have to put up with shameless promotions of their products. Admittedly, it's effective as I ended up purchasing a number of their products while learning many great tips and tricks.
      Still, I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on car care such as how long I should wait to wax a new car. Is there anything that uniquely applies to new cars? Any general guidance around keeping the car pristine, inside and out, would be appreciated. It seems tough to prevent scratching the clear coat no matter how much due diligence is paid.
      Here's a small number of links I've collected:
