What polish/Wax do you use

Post by Xantic »

So may different ones on the market now and i know some will swear by the brand they use.

I am looking at Meguiares Polish and Collinite 476 Wax.

Ive used a few Meguiares products on a few cars, especially the light swirl remover, and liked them a lot but i have always used Autoglym on the XM, dark colours wax and a hard wax protector in liquid form, i dont find any better or worse but just different tbh.
I stick with Autoglym on the X because ive used it for over 12 years on that car and dont want to mix on another product, hell for all i know the car could of desolved years ago and all thats left is a shell of wax with the paint stuck to the inside.

There is something very satisfying about applying a wax out of a tin though, yes i know, im not right.

I have always used Autoglym but was thinking of trying something else.

I use autoglym on dark colours and turtlewax on light colours. Sometimes use colour magic on red if it's a bit faded, aka 4 coats of it on the bucket of a fiesta van I had, and on black if is swirly. Autoglym window polish is the only stuff I will put on glass, once washed with fairy liquid and dried with a glass towel, but rarely do the inside, as the windows seem to steam up more if polished.

I use Autoglym polish on exterior windows on my cars and truck, Not on windscreen obviously. I also use Autoglym metal polish on the fuel tank of my truck.

Why change my polish i ask myself, Because i am curious as to what everyone else uses. 8-[

I've used meguiares clay bar last year and their detailing spray. The clay I could not believe how effective it was at removing tar and other crap. Used autoglym for years but the quality went downhill whilst the prices went crazy, so like many, I have a shed full of half opened polish, silicone wax, resin something, canuba this and about a thousand Mr Blobby microfibre washing mitts!

I have just bought a new clay bar, I threw out all my old polishes, as you say we try this and that, It depends on the car paintwork i think and different makes of car shine better than others. I will start saving for the Welsh Aston Martin and try some good polish on that, It should have some good paint on it.

Try Iechyd Da Alasdair!

And whilst we're slightly off topic, that's given me an excuse to see who owns Aston...mmmmm

Prestige Motor Holdings (sounds a bit dodgy)
Asmar (good mate of mine)
Primewagon (wasn't that a chocolate biscuit)
Adeem Investments (really)
Daimler (I knew our German friemds were in there somewhere)
DAR Capital (Dar capital of what?)
Sthewaz Automotive (if you say so)
Other minor shareholders 10% (not GiveMeABreak or Xantic, honest) :^o
