Polish do you use on your Motor?

I'd hazzard a best the majority use Meguiars, but interesting to find out. I'm using some turtle wax stuff at the mo, it's not the greatest in the world but then neithers the bodywork on my car! :lol:

Polish?

I use Autogylm...for the sole reason that i got 3 free bottles at F&M 2 years ago! But I dont polish my car that often cause its silver, no real need to!

But I also use Meguiars ScratchX when I need to!

If i was to buy polish, it would defo be Megs i would buy!

Tried halfrauds showroom polish (won best polish product test in practical classics), it sucks.

t-cut colourmagic is good but is a bitch to get off the black trim

I now have some expensive zymol stuff. Don't know if it is any good but i will find out soon.

Tesco wash and wax, and then tesco wax.

I need to touch up the paintwork before i'm bothered about spending cash on wax etc. Still waiting for my free autoglym kit from geting one of the trials of a car mag.

Re: Which polish

I usually use Autoglym products to maintain a finish having previously used their "PDi kit" (cheap - off eBay ) but am currently trying out the lower priced products of the Zymol range, results are very very promising and it's a piece of piss to use (compared to some other products).

Meguairs stuff leaves me non-plussed.... I don't dislike it but I don't love it either. The clay stuff is good though 8-)

Re: Which

I use T-Cut Colour Magic +. Came with a useless chipstick thing, which is obviously meant to cover small scratches and chips. It doesn't and as far as I can see it's just a white crayon (not even silver like it's meant to be).

The polish though is great. Never had a problem with it, though is annoying when it gets on the black trim, though I've got Back to Black for after I've washed it off.

I've got a bottle of Turtlewax Polish as well, but I find the T-Cut, since it's for silver paint, makes it look better
