My 2015 Platinum equipped the same way as yours, except min is the Magnetic Metallic, on X-Plan invoice was just a hair over $59,000 in July. I bought mine just before they started to roll out $10,000 off on certain models. Looks like a reasonable discount.

Not really. I keep it waxed with Meguiars Ultimate Liquid Wax and apply with a dual-action polisher and wash with their Gold Class Shampoo and Conditioner.

For touch-ups I use the Meguiar's Quik Deatailer. As long as the paint isn't too soiled, I use this to get dust off to maintain appearance between washings.

Winter hasn't hit here yet in Colorado, so I'll end up having longer runs between waxes because of the cold and snow. It's just typically not practical to do a full wash/wax during the winter here unless we have an unseasonably warm day which does happen, but I'll do maintenance waxing with Ultimate Quik Wax. I'll end up utilizing the self-serve spray wash places during the winter since they heat their water so I can still do a hand wash on the "warmer" days and wax at home.

Even through a few rains this summer and the road grime on the paint, the truck still looks largely clean - thanks to the wax and maintenance I do. Be interesting to see what happens this winter with the snow .

It looks like you are getting the rebates that you get when your finance through ford credit. Plus, It also sounds like they pulled the 4k plus worth of profit as well. We are doing the same thing to just move these trucks. If anyone has any purchasing questions, as a salesman, I would love to help!
