I would recommend wax for automobiles

I don't think that's a color, but there's a detailing forum.

I'm sure there are many favorites you can find. Me? Just keep the paint clean and almost any coating will do. If you want to really be OCD about it, you'll really need to know more than just wax, you know. It's all in the prep...or lots of it is anyway!

Fixed your spelling of the color code and moved it to the correct section.

Give it time to dry fully before taking it off (~20mins) and put on very thin layers or you'll get some parts of the paint looking darker than other parts like a shadow effect... Make sure your paint is in good condition - no dirt, debris and remove oxidation, clay if needed, you could polish/compound if applicable the whole nine yards..). I usually wax around twice a week but thats just me. The layer of wax lasts a good while ~ 4-5 months as tested on my moms DD. The actual product lasts even longer since you need only dispense a small bit to go over a fairly large distance. I have about half remaining since May of this year when I bought it waxing one-two times a week since then, applying two coats during each waxing session.... it doesnt stain trim, and I use it on everything from wheels, to windows and headlights/taillights.

I dont have IR or an e46 but I have applied this on a couple of my buddies' cars, mostly darker colored and have an exceptional gloss. GL....

Most waxes are generic. Menzerna Power Lock is a great sealant. As far as wax goes, many like Dodo Juice, Poorboy's World and a couple others. Zymol is very good also. Go to their website- they have waxes for specific colors.

Meguiar's makes colored wax.

I use dodo juice supernatural. And also some bilt hamber stuff. Both are very good.

Like... colored wax? for red cars? i hope that isn't what you are asking...

anyways, P21S is the best bang for your buck, however if you are spending 30 dollars for wax, i suggest you get some claybar, a good polish, and some sealant as well. putting a good wax on a clearcoat that hasn't been properly details is a waste, so start from scratch and get that clay bar out

floydlloyd85 11-01-2012 05:16 PM

I agree. Dont just wax. You must clay-polish then wax last
