    First of all many congratulations in advance, for your black beauty , you are absolutely rite regarding the black exterior & beige interior its really sexy & cool at the same time & that's one of the reason I didn't go for tints

    Coming to the detailing side of cleaning ride , it’s my passion do also visit my Ford edge forum for some more tips Thanks to God: 2011 Ford Edge Limited AWD 3.5 V6 - 199119

    Rite now my babe is wearing Victoria Concours red wax http://victoriawax.com/products/3oz-concours-red-wax , underneath is Victoria cleansed http://victoriawax.com/products/16oz-deep-cleanse
    the sealant she is wearing is Wolfgang deep gloss sealant Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant delivers a deep, wet, liquid shimmer unlike anything you can imagine.
    Victoria is Canadian brand

    1--For your new ride I would suggest start with double bucket wash , I usually won’t go with very expensive shampoos , you can pic meguiare or mothers shampoo
    2--Do clay bar your ride , people thought new cars don't need , but once you do it you will see the things clay bar picks
    3--Do wash again to remove any residue from clay bar
    4-- Next step is polishing which i love , you can do lot of experiments with polishes , your Merc deserve best so go for good brand like Victoria or Wolfgang brand polish or you can even start with Meguires ultimate polish , in my last session I did an experiment with meguires black wax by putting & working it out with lite polishing pad & did a wipeon / wipeoff procedure & it works great Meguiars Black Wax, black wax for cars
    Anyway my all-time favorite is DODO lime prime , simply lovin it :* Dodo Juice Lime Prime Pre-Wax Cleanser Polish 250 ml, pre-wax polish, lime polish, dodojuice prewax cleanser, cleaner polish
    5-- Than I would say seal your ride with good sealant , I love wolfgang sealant , you can even use good synthetic wax as sealant , i do experiments sometimes with waxes , you can buy proper sealant which will help , Pinnacle , black fire or wolf gang
    6-- Last but not least is Carnauba wax , I love carnauba waxes over synthetic any day , it give the pour depth with rite combination of gloss , by saying that always remember """ LSP Is Only As Good As Your Base Preparation " oh LSP means last step product , Victoria has good carnauba wax , dodo has good range & same goes for black fire & pinnicale
    don’t forget to buy lot of microfibers & separate them for different jobs

    Good luck and congratzz again in advance

    Hope above will helpful

    cheers from Newfoundland, Canada
    THANKS so much for sharing. Much appreciate it. Cant wait for my black beauty...

    Previously parking light gives you front orange parking lights , interior instrument cluster lights and tail lights , but switch off day time head lamps , I always switch them on in day time, but now that feature is gone & they report them as update , now your day time lamps always on as per Canadian law
    Now To switch on interior cluster lights & tail lights in day time you need to manually switch on full lights , anyway upgrade was free & for me instead of turning dial to left i now true it to right to switch on full night mode
