Hey guys! First post on the thread. Just picked up a 2015 Orange Si Coupe yesterday:eusa_dance: and was curious on prep work to do. Interior, Exterior, Tires, Rims, Rain-X, anything that will help protect the car. Thanks!

Welcome to 9th gen, cb.

Take a look at the the Detail, Wax & Wax section:

Detailing, Wash & Wax

If you have specific questions after that, post them to a relevant thread.

And yes, your OP was indeed the first post in the thread.

There are a lot of good products to protect paint and interior. I can at least tell you what I did.

1) I had a detail shop scotch guard the interior. The can stuff you can get at any store is ok but detail shops generally have "professional" grade. Some coke spilt on the edge of my seat and floor and the coke just beaded and I wiped it up.

2) Wash your car well and make sure the paint is clean, dry, and warm.

3) http://www.autogeek.net/meguiars-21-synthetic-sealant-2-0.html. Chemical guys makes awesome products as well but I used mcguires.

4) http://www.autogeek.net/meg26hityelw.html. Again, there are many waxes you can use but I prefer this wax. It is very easy to use applying and removing. Do not wax your car with the sun beating down on it.

5) Perform a good wash method regularly. I wash mine once a week. I use the 2 bucket method, a gas pressure washer, and a chemical guys next generation foam cannon. I will only dry my car with microfiber waffle weave towels. All this will minimize paint scratches or marring. ImageUploadedByAG Free1430497311.971836.jpg
