  17. Applying Zaino in Winter

    Car Care RSX
    I'm getting my RSX this week and I'd like to clay and polish it before it starts to snow, but it's been pretty cold lately. Around freezing at night and about 40 during the day. Should I try using Zaino or just stick with the factory wax until it gets warmer?
