    White Car - best product for top liquid gloss

    Hi

    I've researched the forums but couldn't find a definitive answer.

    I'm picking up a white BMW sedan this weekend. Which is the best finishing product to give that deep liquid gloss that I was able to get on my last black car?

    Thanks

    You wont really get a deep look with white, but the Ult. Polish and Ult. Wax would probably be the best products to get a good glossy finish.

    Synthetic or ceramic products look better on light colors.

    With white it is all about the light. Dark colors look best in bright sunlight, a white car looks best on a cloudy day, that's when you can best see the "shine". A white car has the shine of a "Hershey Bar" on a sunny day so people think it is not shiny but if you were to look at the same car at sunset then you will see the shine. Depends on the light.

    A finishing polish, applied with a dual action polisher machine like our MT300 (or a rotary), with a polishing pad, like our DFP5 Soft Buff D/A Foam Polishing Disc, can dramatically increase the brightness & clarity of a light colored vehicle. These kinds of results really just cannot be achieved by hand. If you are going for the absolutely best results, this is what we would recommend looking into. Other than that, most any of Meguiar's Waxes will help to provide gloss.

    On my white Charger, thay used to be my Dad's, the first time I ever polished it I used a Porter Cable 7424xp with M205 to finish polish it, and it got him a lot of attention from his friends at the golf course.
