So I recently passed my test (July) and have a metallic black fiesta... Only a 51 plate but I love her none the less!
I enjoy cleaning it... that's an understatement... I really let my compulsions out on the poor girl!
Anyways my mum brought home some "wash and wax" solution for the karcher but I'm not sure as to whether it's actually effective or whether i'm better off sticking to what i'm using (macguier's quik detailer and a clay bar kit, and turtle wax... not every time I give my car a clean).
My friend and I seem to just talk about cars constantly and he mentioned not waxing too often (maybe twice a year... 3 times max when really necessary) so I was wondering if this wash and wax would do more harm than good?
Would the wax element of the cleaner actually damage the paintwork if used too often, say once every 2 weeks, once a week, weather dependent?
Also does anyone know of a better alternative?
Auto Glym do a bottled solution that I imagine with the branding would be pretty effective although Karcher recommend using just theres so i'm in 2 minds as to whether it'd damage the system and i'd have to replace that for the sake of being stubborn!
Also, being a 12 year old car there are a lot of visible swirls on the paintwork... whats the best product I can use to eliminate most of these? Other than a respray!
I was told poorboys is pretty effective?
I'm new to the forum so any advice is greatly appreciated!
