Have you tried buffing the car? Not specifically with a buffer per se, but with a really good buffing cloth (micro fiber is awesome)? Essentially clean the car up really well, after it's dry use some Meguire's Detailing Spray to clean up any missed spots, or any dried water spots. Use meguire's Gold Class wax, buff it really well with the microfiber, then apply a second coat of meguire's Gold Class (it's my understanding that you can layer it) and maybe tidy it up with some meguire's quick wax afterwards, followed by another buffing.

White is a bitch to get really clean.

hmm i always thought the less wax you used the more shine u got. (in other words dont glob it on) although ive never thought of layers, that may be the ticket.

Even though it's a white car I would recommend trying out Blackfire - it's a synthetic wax that actually makes the depth of the paint stand out. It was made for darker colored cars but works on lighter colored ones as well. I bought it for my black integra and it made that baby shine - really brought out the metallic. But I was worried that it wouldn't make it that nice on my silver bimmer. I finally got to it and I must say that it brings out a really nice shine in normal sunlight.

The new car kit gets you more than you need. =)

Nope - I'm pretty sure it's made by Proper Auto Care - http://www.properautocare.com/

I can vouch that they ship things out quite fast(located in florida) and are very helpful over the phone or email. I live in Cali and it took about a week to get the New Car kit.

I can post some pics of the old car if you want.

L337's bling shine methods...

1) Clay Bar car (every 6 months is good)

2) Whoop out Cyclo buffer http://www.cyclomfg.com/

3) Polish with 3m Finesse It

4) Polish with 3m Perfect It

5) wax on/wax off with 3m wax

6) Seal wax Layer with Klasse Sealant

7) Add 2 more Layers of 3M wax

8) One more layer of Klasse sealant (Works like Rainx on all of your windows and plastic lenses on car exterior too) to seal in blingshine

Bling Bling...

this is where you all laugh........

imagine a new car that has sat in a yard for a minimum of two years..... a nice green coating of moss and lots of tree sap!

what we use (only on white cars) is a bathroom cleaner called "CIF" it was originally called "JIF"

its basically a cream bathroom cleaner that is slightly abrasive! it does the job and makes your car smell nice and fresh... :lol: :lol: :lol: i've found it better than t-cut at times........
