I just waxed my car using Klasse followed by two coats of P21S carnuba wax as described on Autopia. (http://www.autopia-carcare.com/inf-perfect.html)

Ohmygod -- it's amazing. I had tried Meguirs NXT a few weeks ago but didn't really like how it came out on my Torch Red GT.

Yes -- this combo is fairly expensive -- I think the Klasse and the P21S were $50 all tolled, but you use only a small amount of each product so it should last a long time. The result is an incredibly deep, rich shine. It looks like you can reach into the finish. I'm totally sold.

I'll try to post pictures this weekend. (I need to find a "pretty" place to do a photo shoot.)

As promised, here are some pics. This wax is incredible -- the pictures don't do it justice. I brought the car to a cruise last night and several people commented on it, they couldn't believe it was a 2002, they thought it was a an 04. This is a daily driver, is not garaged (I have a cover) and is driven through the winter.

That's great looking; stuff really does the job! I have to convince you to get a chin spoiler; car is just made for it.

Yeah, I know -- it would look really good -- but it's my daily driver and has to go through the snow too. I'm planning on putting springs in it and I'm afraid that after I do that putting a chin spoiler on it too would just asking a little too much forgiveness of snow plow mounds and such....

-- well, a guy could put on in summer and take off in winter, not like it's welded on. You're right about the snow issue - I'm from Detroit initially.

Nice shine !!

Now, here is what I just learned. Next time you go for a hand wash job....get yourself a bottle of spray on wax, the kind meant to be put on while the car is wet.

As you spray this wax on, it literally chases the water off your car! I am not kidding. Drying the car after spraying with wax is all but effortless.

Hey, LANGOD/FIAT FREAK - 3-wing spinners: where'd you get them and what do you think about them on my car - too much?

I got them from BRS -- www.brsparts.com. About $130 for all four. Easy to install. I think they'd look great on your black rims!

Meatball,

Your car is perfect. And, these pictures were taken with a fantastic background.

Sometimes, less is more. Spinners might be too much. Just my opinion.

Wow....

Wow, that's awesome shine, just in case you run into this situation, I was out of town last week and I left my car sitting outside. When I came back I saw that my car had tons of water marks. Any way to make a long story short I used F21 wax and I took all the water marks out, no problem… just want to let you know.<TABLE style="WIDTH: 177pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=236 border=0 x:str><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 177pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 8630" width=236><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 12.75pt" height=17><TD style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; WIDTH: 177pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 12.75pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" width=236 height=17></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE><TABLE style="WIDTH: 177pt; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=236 border=0 x:str><COLGROUP><COL style="WIDTH: 177pt; mso-width-source: userset; mso-width-alt: 8630" width=236><TBODY><TR style="HEIGHT: 12.75pt" height=17><TD style="BORDER-RIGHT: #ece9d8; BORDER-TOP: #ece9d8; BORDER-LEFT: #ece9d8; WIDTH: 177pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: #ece9d8; HEIGHT: 12.75pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" width=236 height=17></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

Just curious - How long did it take - start to finish, and where did you buy it?
The kid at Advance Auto parts didnt know what I was talking about.

Sorry it took so long to reply.
I spent about 6 hours total probably, but I split it up over two days.
Day 1: wash, dry, clay, wash and then testing the waxes on one panel.
Day 2: Wash, detail, wax rest of car.

I bought everything at Autopia-carcare.com -- I'd recommend them highly. Take a look at their "how to" section -- great stuff!

Btw -- it's 3 weeks of daily driving later now, and it still looks great -- just have to wash the car and it looks as good as the day I waxed it! The car is not garaged either, I just have a car cover.
