    Have a look in the detailing guides mate.

    The long and short of it is you will need a decent paste wax, or sealant, otherwise you'll have no protection.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Adding to what gaz has said, kepeing it clean and not letting dirt /salt sit on the paintwork for too long also helps. Dont forget to wash out the wheel arches especially the lip as crud will settle there and hold moisture causing corrosion.
