I love to look at the soul red. I have a CX5 in that color. When it came time to chose a color for my new 3, I passed though. It chips far to easily and is VERY difficult to touch up. I went with poly metal gray for the 3. Better match for the Black/ burgundy interior too, not mention saving 600 bucks.

managed to get a couple of screen shots from the Spanish video showing the production at the Mazda plant in Mexico. It shows the under coat before they apply the Soul Red paint, which ties in with what a salesman was trying to explain to me when I asked why that specific colour was so expensive.

(update - what happened to the screen shot I posted? Here it is again)

I have a question - should I start waxing the car right away, or is there a period of time that the paint needs to be left alone before you start protecting it?

All paint even new paint have impurities..you could just wash then Glaze or polish and then wax, then a wipe over with hydrophobic sealant.
Depends on how you want tackle the paint...
Always jet wash and use 2 bucket method to avoid swirls.

Basically..
Foam
Wash
Clay
Glaze/polish
Sealant
Wax
Could also top with a hydrophobic like Turtle wax seal n shine.
Lots of info on www.detailingworld.com

Thanks for the overview! But final question - polish? A new car? Isn't that just to remove scratches and swirls?

Looks great! I could never afford M&K products. But Turtle Wax Seal & Shine is in my price range - I'll pick some up today.

Does that mean the undercoat is grey for all colours?

Just having trouble deciding on the colour and was keen on selecting one that match the closest to the undercoat just in case of scratches etc.
