    What is your favorite Wax for dark and silver cars?

    As much as I've searched this -- and yes I know, there are hundreds of threads on the topic, I can't seem to make up my mind on what to buy next. I have a silver BMW and a black lexus and I don't know what the best LSP on them will be after doing a UC/UP treatment. I've heard great things about UW, M26, M21, M16, Gold Class Plus, NXT, etc. I don't want to spend $100 and buy all of them, so I'm curious what everyones current favorite is for light and dark cars.

    NXT 2.0 on light colored cars (more so on light metallics).
    Ultimate Wax on dark colored cars.

    Why not get sample sizes of your major contenders & try them on the cars?

    Well as far as I know you can't get samples of the waxes, at least not the pastes

    I can't decide between Gold Class Carnauba Plus, M26, or Ultimate Wax for our black cars (we actually have two black cars).

    If longevity is a factor, Ultimate Wax is a top choice on a properly prepared black car. Looks good too. Would think it would look good on blue too.

    If you can find it, I have found M16 is the longest lasting and most eye popping wax for a black car. In my opinion you can use furniture wax on a silver car. They look good waxed or not. I also have a black and silver vehicle, and I think the silver one might have been waxed a year or more ago. I really noticed no difference and it still shines even though I am sure the wax has probably all washed off. I probably will not bother to wax it again. On the other hand, the black car needs waxing every 4 or 5 months. That M16 is marvelous for black.

    M16 FTW

    I also like M26, NXT 2.0 and Do Do Juice waxes for a blue car works great and I tried the Yellow wax for gold paint and it looks great.

    But, Meg's is in my price range and they look great!

    I just bought some M16

    I was reading that some people don't like it as much for black as they do other colors because it doesn't leave the "warmth" that some other waxes do. I think one reviewer describes the shine as "brighter."

    I would probably suggest NXT 2.0 but I'm not sure how UW would look... I would suggest trying both because they are amazing products! Just pick whatever you like and use that often.
