Yo any car that is waxed would look good... it brings out the color....

even sometimes when you bring your car thru the car wash you'll see the difference...

ie


not the best pic... but this is hond's Auto Butler Buffing machine...

Wow, I would NEVER take my car though any other car wash but a touch less one. The best wax/ sealant is BFWD for any color really. It give the paint a wet look to it.

i dont bother with wax/polish. really doesnt do much for the car because of the colour. just a wash is good enough and it looks amazing.

here's a pic washed with some crappy black magic car wash that sitting in my garage of 5-6 years, meguiar's aluminum wheel cleaner and mother's back to black for the trim:







i think it looks sharp and wax/polish probably wont make it look any better than it is.

it does need a claybar though so wax/polish will eventually have to be done.

Any color will look much better with a good wax. I would choose p21s (big fan) or something from einszett. Not too expensive and many exotic owners swear by both.

Mothers back to black is junk.
I have heard people say this, but they used it as a dressing. Its more of a plastic dye when used multiple time. Some say that the plastic didnt return to the gray color. Also I think its only supposed to be used on black surfaces.

I have applied on multiple occasions and wasn't impressed. Perhaps its too watery? It looks fine for a day or two but goes back to looking faded :facepalm:

Wax helps protect the paint so why wouldn't you wax it? I think I washed and waxed it before taking this pic. Been a while.
