Hi, does anybody have any ideas about what wax to use on my M3. On my previous black sapphire 325 I used zymol carnuba wax and had some pretty amazing results. Any ideas what to use on an Alpine white M3? Cheers

A good polish to remove minor swirl marks is Chemical Bros EZ creme glaze acrylic. It's brilliant on dark colours but assume would be OK for white too.

For a wax, I use Pete's 53, which is a carnuba wax and very easy to apply. A little goes a very long way. It is brilliant on dark colours unfortunately I couldn't advise for white.

Good to know as i just got this recently with my last order

To OP...your thread title is "polish" but you ask about wax in your question. There different as polish is used more to help remove swirls or other fine lines and wax will help protect. Menzerna has some good polishes. And like mentioned above the Chemical Guys glaze polish.

As far as wax, i like using sealant as it lasts longer and you get a real good look from it. Menzerna FMJ (full molecular jacket) is a great sealant. Plus after you use a sealant, you could follow up with a wax...but your supposed to let the sealant cure for a while; over night or so.
