Best polish and car care products?????

Hi all, I am theproud owner of a new BLACK X5 and after swearing I'd never own a black care, for some crazy reason I bought one

I have a bunch of cleaners, polishes etc - but was wondering what are you all using - please let me k ow the color of your vehicle too

Wash I use foam gun, polishing I use Menzerna, LSP what ever the mood strikes me or if it's summer, winter fall, Swissvax, Victoria Wax, Zaino, Petes '53 also a host of others cleaners, treatments. I really like Pinnacle Leather treatment and for tires Amazing Roll-off. I have a Saphire Black. Remember Friends don't let Friends use Turtle Wax !

You'll get a lot of different responses on this. Probably the best concours wax is Zaino and P21s. If you go to www.gurureports.com they are known for their testing of waxes and those 2 usually come out on top. I have jet black and use P21s---it's so easy to take on and off. Zaino has a few steps involved so if you have time to do all of them then that is pretty decent as well. P21s is a pure carnuba and Zaino is a polymer. There is a difference between concours waxes and what you get at Autozone.

For 10+ years I only used Meguiars (which also makes "factory" products for MBZ and Rolls Royce). Recently I switched to Mother's and I really love them all. I use the wash, wax, and love their quick detailer. I probably use 1-2 bottles a month, it smells like cinnamon, adds amazing shine, removes little droppings and I have only had to wash my X5 1x in 4+ months.

Did you look at our detailing forum?
Search for Menzerna there. Great product. Swissvax is another great product. I moved away from Zaino.

And check out Phil's great detailing threads.
