New Car Paint

Hi guys
I'm in the lucky position to be getting a new Giulia in the next few weeks. I want to start of on the right foot regarding the paintwork. Should I get it detailed? What should I do with it?

Lots of options. You could pay someone to detail the car or do it yourself. Seems a lot of detailers are offering various packages from using traditional waxes to the super durable coatings. I guess it depends your goals, do you want to wax on a regular basis or are you after the lower maintenance type products and would you rather pay someone or do it yourself

Giulia 2.0

I'm about to take delivery of a Giulia and I've instructed my dealer not to touch the paintwork on the car and am taking it to a detailer.

The one I'm going to use has a basic package but as I'm planning on keeping it for at least 6 years, it's getting a harder coating and also some leather protection as my seats are beige.

I've used a different detailer on my Brera a couple of years ago and he did a fantastic job, but is no longer local. The new chap has some fantastic reviews and even went to the states to pick up new tips from one of their experts.

Just out of interest, was this for Optimum products?
