Washing new car tips?

Are you supposed to wait a couple weeks before washing your new car? I just drove home from the dealer and hit a few bugs. Tried the search button, but got this:

^ Yup, no need to wait. The paint has probably had several weeks to cure by this point. Just make sure to use the two bucket method, and use some good microfibre towels.
