WAX Help - "Gold Class"?

Anyone tried the Gold Class Meguires (sp?) liquid wax? Any thoughts?

What do you use to clean/maintain the leather inside? Recommendations?


I think it's time for a wax and some interior cleaning. =)

I've used Meguiar's Gold Class. It seems to dull my silver paint. I forgot where but I've read that this stuff is not meant to be used on german paint although some people swear by the stuff on their bimmers. For my interior leather, I use Lexol Leather Cleaner and their Conditioner.

German paint?

German paint? Huh...never knew there was a difference. I mean I know there is a difference between a Honda's paint and BMW, but I thought most luxury car companies had the same paint qualties...hell...u learn something every day dontcha!??!

I use it and it does the job...I bought it for $10. It did make my paint feel like glass for a few days...Then pollen got all over it.

I have used Gold Class for a number of years now and I have had great results. I think it is the best wax hands down, but remember its a wax not a polish. If the shine is what you are looking for try the Meguiar's polish before waxing... it makes for a lot more work but the results are far superior. I used to use Race Glaze to get the super shine but it leaves so much residue it looks like crap in a number of days. You can't go wrong with Meguiars.

I Highly recommend Zaino! Although it costs 10 times more, and takes a while, it is definitely worth it. My car had swirls all over and now it is better than new. Did i mention my car is black? I'll try to post a pic for ya.
