ok here ya go... i dont care what all those commercials say...zymol is the shit man!!! its pretty expensive, but trust me its worth it... get the titanium wax(52.00 for a baseball size container), and tha wash and everything else that you can get from them and use it!!!!

I used "TurtleWax Bug and Tar Remover" the other day to get bugs and stuff off and found out that it also shines and protects.

I like Meguiar's Gold Class.

Tomorrow I'm gonna try Mother's Soap, Mother's Clay Bar, and Mother's Carnuba Wax. I'll let ya know how it goes.

Here's a pic after using Meguiar's:

I use the full Meguiars wash kit, with the 3 step wax and everything, but i like TurtleWax's ZipWax, it cleans the car nice, follow it up w/ the meguiars waxing and it'll be P.I.M.P. smile thumbsup

full Meguiar's line:

- car wash
- paint cleaner
- polish
- carnauba wax
- gold class liquid wax

the whole process takes roughly 5-6 hours but it's worth it to see the finished product

zymol !!!!! its awesome for shine, cleaning, and it's blue so it hides even some major scratches i have on my carbon blue, white wax just wont cut it on a dark car.
