    Detailing Newbie

    Hi, I'm looking for some advice on detailing. I usually just take the car down the local car wash and that's it for a month. I have just had two new front wings (free from audi) fitted so want to protect them and rest of the car. I have been told by a friend not to wax them yet for 3months and then to use dodo something!Help and advice from you guys on what I should do and use please.

    thanks
