Just picked up my '12 HB SL, Mag. Grey metallic, last night and I'm wondering how long are you waiting before you first apply wax?

I noticed another thread where it was mentioned that these have thin paint. Glad I saw that because my first step with most fac. clear-coat paint is a ultra fine (2500) color sand and polish to level the orange peel and finish with Zaino topcoats. The surface on mine isn't terrible and certainly not worth risking trashing it with sanding.

I'm actually looking forward to doing this since the Versa has about 1/4 the surface area of my last car :)

I waxed mine like a month after I got it because I removed the pinstripe and Versa emblem so I wanted to protect those areas. I usually wax it every 6 months.

No need to wait longer then 30 days for a vehicle factory painted since the paint is baked on.

I used to use NXT car shampoo and NXT synthetic wax but now I am using Wet Paint. I generally clay bar once or twice a year and apply wax once or twice a month.
