Lightbulb What kind of wax do you use on your 930?

I've always used a straight carnuba wax, but on a black car it shows every swirl. Are there any newer waxes that are better than the old school stuff?

Personally I use Collinite Doublecoat No. 476s. It is old school but so is my single stage white paint so they compliment each other.

Collinite Wax Products* :: Choice of the Pros :: Auto, Marine and Industrial

It was included in this test and stacked up well against some of the boutique brands costing much more. It is also made in the US since 1936.

Wax on my 930

Through the years, I probably have tried almost every wax in the U.S. I used Griot's for many years, but after I got my black turbo, I have found the best for me is Adams buttery wax. Very easy to apply and remove, and no swirl marks!
