Wax is great on headlights, but look into Opti-Coat 2.0...lasts forever. Another option...seal it with a 50/50 mix of Helmsman Spar Urethane and Mineral Spirits (just tape rubber peices off first). Use some Scotts Blue Paper Towels..wipe light clean w/spirits first...then take a 1/2 of one of the towels ...then fold it to a pretty small square and soak it in the 50/50 mix and wipe it on in one direction in slightly overlapping rows. It will last much longer than wax if you don't want to dish out $60 for the opti-coat (bu if you get the OC you can do your whole car )

I haven't read all the how to's yet, my attention span won't allow it right now but those before and after pix are awesome. I see those exact swirls in my CV and would love to get rid of them.

Wills & Dani www.windowsandwheels.com are doing my brand new Charger.
I know it sounds nuts, but i want it cleaned, buffed and sealed before it hits the street.
I met the two at dinner one night and felt him out as to if he really knows what he is doing or is it bluff. I think he is the real thing. We shall see this weekend. I'm sure he will post pictures of the work.

Hey George Soros, will you do us all a favor and Die Soon, real soon.
It is ABSOLUTELY NOT CRAZY to get this done to a brand new car. Matter of fact, it's the SMARTEST decision you can make to protect your paint. The big mistake most people make is thinking the opposite!! "Oh I don't need to polish/wax/seal my new car's paint.....it's brand new!" And that's exactly when you SHOULD!! To KEEP IT that way!! Smart move bro.
Sad part is, most dealers put swirls in the paint when they do the "courtesy" detail anyway. Bummer, 90% of new cars that leave the lot, need paint correction lol.

Wow, thats sad. Too bad there isn't a way you could get them to pay for the detail you want us to do on the car lol. Ive seen that story a lot..someone goes and spends HOURS doing it themselves or they pay someone 100's of dollars to do it for them...then in 15 freakin' minutes some idiots at a dealership or a mechanics garage screw it up...just that quick...and theres nothing you can do about it because you can't PROVE it was in good shape before hand unless of course you took pictures right as you dropped it off.
Now that i think of it...i bet if the dealership guys saw you doing pictures to show the paints condition right before they took it...they wouldn't even LEAN on it funny let alone 'wash it' because they'd have to pay to have it fixed. Maybe an idea for next time huh?
