Thought of giving the car a clean myself this weekend, ive got everything else just no wax etc.

What would be the best wax to use on a Black fiesta?

Definitely give one of Auto Finesse's wax's a try they're amazing on dark colours I find.

 

Autoglym HD wax and meguiars are also highly rated to

I got these reflections from Meguiars Ultimate liquid wax

Although the majority of the shininess comes from the polishing. The wax is the icing on top if you like :D

Cheers for that, couldn't find any auto finesse so I got some Autoglym instead! Would be doing it right now but it's snowed here over night... Great.

Autoglym HD Wax is well rated from what I can gather.  It get's overlooked by the fashionable waxes.

Thanks for the advice guys, came back from Amsterdam and had a day off so I thought I'd wash and wax my car, looks 10x better, the reflection is like looking in a mirror!

Autoglym Aqua Wax, they had a deal going on in the Halfords near me, came with free shampoo and other crap.

I used the Diamondbrite Shampoo and consealer that came with the Fiesta beforehand.
