    wax, for look only

    hi, everybody, I have a solid black car and I dont' care for the wax live, but I would the blackest, glossiest, brightiest paint possible. My options are: Up, followed by dark wax, or Color X followed by GC Carnauba plus or UP, DW topped by GC, or topped by UW...what's the best combo? thanks! sorry for my English!

    Up, followed by dark wax,
    This would be a polish, followed by a cleaner/wax type of product... so you would pretty much remove the oils from the polish in the process. Bit of a waste of time, and probably not best looks.

    Color X followed by GC Carnauba plus
    A cleaner/wax followed by a wax is a popular easy detail... but wont have as much polishing oils for the shine as a polishing product would.

    UP, DW topped by GC, or topped by UW...what's the best combo?
    The UP being a polishing product is going to have a lot of oils to help the paint look great, and then GC or UW are going to help lock it in and give a good shine. I like how the Ult. Wax looks the most... but some people will say the Gold Class looks a bit richer on dark colors.

    I think the wax choice would be if you want a bit richer, or a bit shinier....

    Thank you very very much for the answer. I'll try the UP/UW wax combo. Afterwards, can I top UW, with GC? Instead, should the DW, be used alone?

    You could top the UW with GC is you wanted to.

    The DW could be used alone, or topped with a regular wax product. Basically any cleaner/wax type product would want to go on first, then a regular wax if wanted second.
