What brand of Wax does everyone use? Ive seen Carnuba in a few forums. I was gonna use meguires "gold class", but im curious to see what my fellow bimmer drivers use. The color is black if that makes a diffrence.
Hi, I also have a black BMW. I started out using Mother's California Gold Carnuba, but I about broke my A... getting it off. I found it terribly difficult to work with, however, I was waxing it by hand. Since then I have switched to Zymol. It is a liquid and much easier to work with. It does a great job too!
Don't forget to clay your car at least once a year.
Polymers are by far the easiest and most durable. I recommend either Blackfire or Four Star Ultimate Paint Protection (UPP for short). No wax or sealant will remove paint. If you see a color transfer from surface to applicator, its removing dead paint, via abrasives or chemical cleaning. There are some wax/cleaners which are designed to do this, they clean the paint, then protect. very short lived protection though. Your better off polishing your paint, then preserving with a Polymer.
Zymol was ranked best by Consumer Reports a couple of years ago... best shine and durability. I also like Maguiar's...

I detail professionally and I use a variety of brands. I recomend a polish, wax/sealant and then a carnauba. I really like the Klasse Twins, the All in One cleans the paint and shines it and the High Gloss Sealant Glaze enhances the depth and gives it protection. Poorboys has an amazing variety of products that are best bang for your buck and are great on BMWs. I also started using Menzerna which is used by Mercedes in their factory, and I've been really impressed with that as well. After I've put on the polish and the wax/sealant I like to top it off with a Carnauba wax like p21s (my personal favorite) but poorboys world is a close second with their EX and their Natty's Paste Wax.
