Car Waxing

Car Wax for the brightest shine ? Which would you say is that product ? Ease of use ?
I'm nuts after washing my autos about how well they shine especially the color black.
I don't mind quick and easy. Clay products do help in my experience. I am sort of a Mc Guires fan but will try any other product if it will out do the shine I now have. What are your thoughts ?
Thanks Arnie

I've used many products and I'm stuck on Zaino. By far the best result, longest lasting, and dirt repellent product.

I'm a huge fan of Pinnacle Souveran. This kit is not cheap at $139.00 but you get everything below. If you have a black car like I do, it looks amazing! It really brings out a deap rich wet shine. It's not a quick easy process. On a nice rainy day here in South Florida, a beer, and a couple hours in the garage your car will shine like never before!

Kit includes:

Pinnacle Bodywork Shampoo
Pinnacle Souverän™ Wax
Pinnacle Paintwork Cleansing Lotion
Pinnacle Crystal Mist Carnauba Detail Spray
2 Gold Plush Jr. Microfiber Towels, 16 x 16 inches
1 Foam Wax Applicator Pad
1 Microfiber Applicator Pad

Your car looks great but until we are side by side I think I shine a bit more, that's what I think of all day wax jobs, nothing wrong with quick and easy. OK yours shines that much more than mine. Good job, Arnie

Interior Leather

Hi,
My arm rest (center console) serves two purposes one its for me, secondly it's my dog Quincys, seat. I have some wear on the leather, are there leather dyes that would color match sold by BMW. I haven't had a chance to check with the dealership. Any ideas or thoughts ? Thanks, Arnie

Do you apply all 3 with the micro fiber one after the other, or are there different stages during the wax job that you apply the beer to the car?
