Default Cleaning Products & Care for New TL

I've read some posts that talk about not sending the TL through automatic
car washes and using special products to wash the car.

I have always relied on car washes to keep my cars clean. However, I have
never spent this much money on a car so I want to make sure that I take care
of it properly.

If anyone could provide a list of products and where I can get them, I would
really appreciate it. Also, are there any special cleaning/waxing routines
that I should follow?

Wow, your thoughts are almost exactly what mine were a year ago when I
bought my RSX. I had been driving a '91 Civic for 12 years and had never
owned such a nice car.

I swear by Zaino products. This spring I clayed and polished the RSX after
the long New England winter, and I swear the finish is better than when I
bought it. Clay and polish twice a year, and wash weekly *by hand*. Zaino
has all the products and instructions you need on their website:
www.zainobros.com

Good luck!

"Clay" and polish? What is "claying" a car? 8-)
