    As the title says, can anybody recommend the best polish and wax for this particular colour?

    I've tried most brands but can quite get that "wet look" that I crave.

    I assume you mean Collinite 476 wax, but what about the polish?

    Collonite is good but look for colour specific polishes/glazes and waxes, poorboys do a glaze, dodo juice do a wax and so do forum vendor Autobrite.

    I have been using Auto Glym Super Resin Polish (AGSRP).

    It is a great polish, however some may not like it as it contains fillers in the product, so it will remove slight scratches in the paint, however after a while these will probably become noticeable again.

    All the best,

    I don't know if that is wet enough for you, but my Titanium Silver E91 is currently wearing Autobrite Cherry glaze and then two coats of Autobrite Addiction wax on top....

    I have used Collinite 476 a few times myself, good stuff IMO - BUT..... Always put on the smallest amount possible (layer it on is best anyway) and make sure that the panel is not too hot (it's a bugger to shift it then!)

    Thats the product Kevin, the AB Addiction is colour specific wax for lighter coloured cars isn't it.

    to afc69, Poorboys White diamond glaze followed by AB Addiction wax or alternatively
    DDJ White Diamond hard wax/DDJ Light Fantastic soft wax.

    the PB White Diamond glaze and AB Addiction is available from forum vendor AutoBrite Direct
