Using a "base" will decrease the durability of the wax though, bare paint is best for durability.

I have to agree with Brun and advise you dont polish mostly because you shouldn't need to so any defects you find on the delivery inspection you should ask the dealer to sort (within reason). Don't clay or polish but follow the others advice to prep and protect and I think the BH Double Speed wax is a great effective starting point and I'd play with a few toppers over the next 9 months or so. In this time you should practice your polishing skills preferably with a new da on an old panel ready for the full detail next spring.

Thanks to everyone who replied..... I've got plenty to think about. I'm still leaning towards a good wash, spray decon and then some decent wax. Then use a seal n wax type product about once a month. Of course I'll still keep an open mind about this and the car won't arrive for a couple of months. Cheers.

It sounds like you just want the simple life with this.

My recommendation would be,
Wash
Chemical decontamination
Apply your chosen wax

Then when you do your maintenance washes, finish down with a quick detailer.

I can't see your wax lasting a year, even with sacrificial layers over the top, the base layer will still diminish.
But the quick detailer would (usually) offer some hydrophobic properties to keep the beading going, then reapply the wax as you see fit.

From my use of my recommendation, it doesn’t affect 90% of waxes and sealants and you can even use actual ceramic coatings on top of it. It’s as good a base as you’re going to find, particularly in this case, which is, unsurprisingly why I recommended it.
