I do not wax it anymore. It is ceramic coated now! as for driving, between not driving and doing a NY -peeble beach round trip in 2 weeks there is a middle ground. but you are right, when you work to make money and get these things, you have no time left to drive. When you dont work to make more time, you cannot afford to drive them anymore. What to do? lol.. We will sure follow, especially when you enter the grizzly bear counties!
