For your awareness, here's a statement from the Wax Forum, sponsored by Mothers.

"Myth: 'My salesman told me because my new car's paint has a clearcoat, or it has a special dealer-added coating, I don't have to wax it.'"

"False. All paint must be periodically clayed, cleaned and waxed to protect it from damage due to contamination, dirt and UV rays. Many consumer advice publications recommend against dealer-added paint protection programs, as they are often overpriced synthetic wax and are only as good as their installation, which can vary greatly with regard to attention to detail. They still have to be maintained with routine applications."
