Best Polish-Wax for Black Altima

Hey guys, just want your opinion on which is the best polish and wax for a black Altima 2013, I've just picked it up a couple of weeks ago and after 1 bath small, minimum swirls and scratches came up not that of a deal but well I tried to keep it as good as I can. What are the best ways to maintain the shine and avoid or remove those scratches, swirls. Which one do you use and how often.

Regards

just having a little fun.....now i will contribute...........dont waste your money on all those high dollar cleaners for black, something like this would work fine in addition to a non spray - wax on wax off session twice a year.....

I just use over the counter stuff like nupolish and eagle one gel wax. I try to keep a coating of wax on there as much as possible like every two weeks and polish it maybe twice a year. It's better than 99% of the car owners around here and the paint shows it!

My car gets a wash at least once a week, then go over it with that turtle wax black detailer spray, then the turtle wax synthetic spray wax. Works like magic



Oh and my car is black too.

Meguiars Black Wax or you can do a clay bar, polish, and wax with Meguiars Mirror series (professional series) and you will be AMAZED by the end result.

I was thinking on using ultimate polish from Meguiars to remove swirl and light scratches and then the Ultimate quick wax afterwards, what do you guys think? Good combination ?, I would like to keep the car as clean as I can.

Silva, if I were you, what I would do is:

1.Meguiars Clay Bar to remove any over spray, contaminants from the air/rain, or any tar/bugs.

2. Meguiars Ultimate Polish to remove fine swirls/scratches.

3. Meguiars Untimate Wax to add the last final finish.


I see you mentioned doing a polish then a quick wax. A polish does not provide the protection a wax offers, that is why you would want to do a total wax like Ulimate wax, not just the quick wax. Yes it will take you about 3 hours to do this, but you will be satisfied once finished.

Chemical guys all the way.

Wash, clay bar, polish, CG v7, CG black light, Optimum seal --> 1 once a year or twice a year.

Usually every month or weather permitting, just wash, CG v7, CG black light.

this is what i do/use. i only polish and wax once a month though. the meguiar products are great, and i've heard amazing things about chemical guys.. just haven't been able to try them out yet.
