Imformation above would be correct when it comes to washing. Just to add to it you would want to make sure you protect your vehicle with either a wax or sealant. There is tons of different LSP (last step products) out there that you can look at. If you are looking for something that will last a long time (4-6months) and can be picked up locally i would recommend Collinite (either 845,476 or 915). You can usually see 1 if not all 3 at your local advance or autozone.
