wax vs. polish
 
I have queried those words in both directions and found a 1000 different posts, I am not going to waste 3 days looking, if you are going to give me shit for asking, I have two words for you, Go Fu&* ur Mother. :nanana:

Now, what is better for an 06 X5 in Silver, wax or polish and why. Then if 1 is better than the other, which is the best brand?

Thanks in advance for your time and mine! CHEERS :thumbup:

Polish makes the paint look better/shinier, wax protects it. For best results polish then wax.

mmm i never knew that, iv only been using wax by mcguire's nano tech black. It seems to get the job done. Everyone here use their hands or other devices?

Wax is kind of a sealant. Comes in the end of polish process.

My 5 step routine:
  1. Menzerna Intensive Polish PO91E +Menzerna Top Inspection
  2. Menzerna Final Finish PO85RD +Menzerna Top Inspection
  3. Menzerna Finishing Glaze PO115C
  4. Menzerna Full Molecular Jacket (FMJ)
  5. Menzerna Power Lock Sealant

Correct

Polish - will remove light swirls/light scratches
Polish gives no protection

Wax will protect and provide a nice gloss and shine.

Thanks for the detailed info. I went out this morning and cleaned a section of the X, I think I am going to pick a clay bar first and get the paint back to clean. Anyone have any advice?

Second, when I polish, finish, glaze, FMJ, and then seal, is it ok to use a motorized bonet to remove each step?

Thanks again for all the great advice!

Google Klasse All In One. Polish and synthetic wax in one step, if you do not want to spend all weekend working on the finish. Great for hand or machine.

I use Klasse AIO, but I have been polishing with Menzerna in a 4 step process due to the sensitivity of Jet Black.
