i think most were not clear coated. i'd hesitate to do the wax thing. i used
to do that on my car...it would look great for two-three days, until the
oxidation started coming back. so unless you like waxing your car every 2-3
days, not a good idea!

i did hear once that if the paint was in great condition except for
oxidizing, it can be prepped by a body shop to make it look perfect long
enough to apply new clearcoat. That's far less money than a new paint job
(50% or less), and will keep the oxidation at bay for years.

IME, the car should be closer to $9,000. You might want to try to take
some carnauba wax on a spot and see if it shines up. Some Tornado Red
Audis did NOT come with clear coat, leaving the paint very susceptible
to oxidation.
