You can probably use it as soon as you'd like...but...

If you want to learn how to properly maintain your new baby inside, outside and under the hood <bonnet> ..please...take some time and visit www.autopia.org . On the top of the home page you'll see a link that says "Learn". Follow that link. You can download an entire book on detailing <valeting > . You will find an entire new universe.

I could go on...but you'll learn it all at Autopia...and the forums there are an invaluable source of knowlwdge and help!

The New MINI has a clear top coat of laquer on top of the paint, that is factory hardened.

You can wax straight away :D

Because of problems with VOCs, most paints are now acrylic-based...waterborne basecoats and topcoats. So I don't think the mini has a laquer clear coat. Four to 6 weeks used to be the waitng period for the paint to cure even after the factory baking. That's about the time from the paint shop to delivery, so like Max said, wax away.
