Just got a new 3, do Ineed to let the paint cure,how soon can I polish and wax it ...

I just got my son a 340i and we want to polish and wax it. We want to make the paint as smooth as possible. The Production date was about 5-6 weeks ago and we took delivery about 8 days ago ... can I use any of the griots polish's and then wax it or do we need to wait for the paint to cure.

Thanks for your help

Yes, cars are painted early in their production, and they are usually heat cured, so they should be gassed out by the time you get it.
