Personally I will be doing it myself (new cars are exposed to so much when it's shipped and dealerships detailers do a horrible job). I will be washing the car right away to remove any dirt on its journey home. Remove any chemicals from the car and whatever wax the dealership slaps on. Going to be doing a very light polish. After I will be using turtle wax graphene flex wax (It's a hybrid ceramic coating with pure graphene. water and dirt slicks right off, car is super easy to clean, and the shine is absolutely amazing plus it last a long time and its easy to reapply). After I will most likely apply a top layer wax (My 280z paint looked really good after doing all these steps). I am debating on also wrapping the front end of the car and hood.

Interior wise I will do a quick interior cleaning, then adding a protectant to all the surfaces to help protect the car from UV then a ceramic coating to all the materials including the carpets to hopefully stop any future water spills and what not.

I also plan on detailing the engine bay right away too if the dealership doesn't.

I plan on getting the 2023 Nissan Z in blue with the blue interior. I'm trying to keep this car forever lol.

That sounds like a great plan. It takes a little more work and experience that I don’t have. But after watching some PPF or ceramic coating videos, I think my preference is to ceramic coat it myself with some really good product over a weekend. That I can do to give it a great shine and easy cleaning for a couple years. All the things we have to do to protect our car. LOL

I agree, take some time, look at some videos and practice right now on your current vehicles so you can master it with your new baby when it comes out. Pan the organizer has a great video on how to detail a brand new car (I will link that video below). I daily a 2016 Corolla, and even though I washed it often, I never did anything to actually protect it or used the wrong techniques to protect the paint, after 5 years the paint looks terrible now, especially the front of my car has a ton of rock chips. I really want to avoid this issue when I get the new Z haha.

Standard Factory coating is fine. After that, I use Zaino car polish products as I have for years with each application lasting 2 to 3 years.
After application, I just use a California car duster to keep thye dust off..
PS--I in no way represent, recommend or endorse Zaino products or California car dusters nor am I an investor enjoying financial gain form these producers.
I'm just stating what works for me.
