Hi all
I'm giving the ds4 a complete wash and clean this weekend
Now with my car being metallic bronze what would be the best wax/polish to use to bring out the colour and give it long lasting shine and good protection.
Thank you

It depends how much you want to spend. You can get something simple Like a bottle of Turtle Wax for about £5 which does a decent job on any colour.

My top choices are Autoglym, Auto Finesse and Swissvax Thumbs Up

Well...Where do we start?
Polish is for cleaning the pores of the paint and removing micro fine scratches either by hand or with a machine polisher
Wax is for protection against the elements and UV light
I use Sealants more than Wax now, both on our cars and my Clients'. then every wask add a QD spray or a Wet applied Sealant like Gyeon Wet Coat to maintain the protection almost indefinately
Garry...As youre in Leeds, and Im in Bingley, how about you bringing it here and we can do it together?...No charge. I have some Ceramic Wax, Carnuaba Waxes and Sealants to choose from
