And tibra, you're using the opposite logic by applying the most expensive products for no real reason. Unless you never drive the car, of course. Then by all means, keep it looking showroom ready. I actually drive my car though.
A lot of it is in the methods, and not the cost of the products. If you don't know what you're doing, no matter how much money you spend on the most expensive wax, your car will still look like shit.
Sorry, but I don't piss away money when I don't need to. I've managed just fine working on my car with some Meguiar's products and some Jetseal or P21S. I'm not spending $1000 on Swisswax for a car that I will drive the next day and get bug splatter on the hood and bumper. My car isn't a garage queen.
Aren't you the guy that replaces a whole wheel if it gets a small nick on it from a rock or something?
Actually re-finish them and only if badly scratched (not simple rock chips)...but thats besides the point..
Car value should not be part of this discussion..people who love their cars and want to keep their paint in the best condition it can be should not be chastised b/c its not a Ferrari
