J325ci04. Whenever I wax my car by hand,
I always wax in the shade or in my garage.
Do not wax in the direct sunshine. I also dampen
my applicator with water and use small amounts
of wax. Follow directions on the wax for best
results. I hope this helps.

Best investment i ever did was Buy a zymol kit. That shit works wonders makes ur car look like a million dollar for weeks. u can get individual wax or u can get a kit. warning u though the kits do get expensive but its well worth it good luck

Make sure to wax in front lines and not circles to cut back on swirl marks. Also, I have been told it is best to use a light buffer on the front end to decrease that spotty look a car can get.

If you can get it, get Autogylm resin polish, my brother uses it on his Audi and its great, Autoglym is the choice for both audi and aston martin,

Yeah and dont polish in the sun or warm/hot bodywork, i really dont trust electric buffer machines, just do it by hand, you can also get autoglym polish cloths
