1. Cleaning the wheels
I was wondering whether standard wheel (rim) cleaner (spray bottle) is safe for the finish of the 2012 R-Design's rims considering they are not chrome but are painted / sprayed with the grey color?
I am looking for a reasonably long-lasting (does not need to be the best) car wax that is easy to apply and remove (no haze to scrub off which potentially can harm the finish and takes too long to remove as well).
I know there is Optimum Car 'Wax' spray, which left streaking on my prior car (black C70), but I assume there is a compromise between that and a thick(er) (longer-lasting) wax that leaves a messy white haze that is harder to remove and that, I suspect, could cause swirl marks.
Open to all recommendations, thanks in advance!
3. Is an automatic car wash for new 2012 S60 R-D?
The owner's manual notes not to go through an automatic car wash the first few months since the "paint won't have hardened enough".
I assume this only applies to cars fresh off the assembly line. In other words I assume a new off the lot 2012, which was manufactured a lot more than a few months ago, can go through an automatic car wash right now?
