Don't think for a second the paint on a new car is perfect. That's far from the truth.
When I picked up my BSM 3 last week, although it looked really good, one of the things I did was to do a full detail a get a good coat of wax on it. This Saturday when I washed it, it was easy and came out looking better than after I'd just picked it up.

And like all colors, but especially black..the sun and heat are not your friend on washing day.
