I'm getting the exact same car in 2 weeks with rear tints, 19s as well. Mine is 420d so not exact exact.

Thanks for making me salivate :-)

love the glossy look of the sealant on EBii, I take it its just the g3, no wax on top. Looks like its just the sealant from that first pic. Stunning is right!! And one for good luck

Waxing shouldnt hurt it, it would just change the look. Looking at the pics id say it would be a waste of wax that finish is stunning. Wax would just look a bit deeper less of that clear shine (hard to describe). Ebii seems to suit the sealant look though, mineral grey is the same imo, different colours suit different finishes, its always hard to know but that g3 looks fab.

the wax would also take away some of the slickness of the g3 so you would not get all the benefit of the easier to clean finish. How long before they said it would need redoing?

Make sure you get some decent shampoo (no turtle wax shit) and a few buckets and mits, keep her looking like new. Enjoy, thats one stunning car

Does Gen 3 recommend a car shampoo?

Would be looking at dodo juice Born to be Mild or similar, it won't strip any layers off.

You may also get away with mild snow foams on own with glass coat finish.

My detailer does not think dodo juice is that good when i mentioned it to him...he thinks autoglym is better??
What snow foam should i use? And should i also hand wash separately with two bucket system?
