I've tried them all and nxt just brings out the color more.

I've always like Meguiar's stuff, the cleaner wax is just a time saver... I used to clay bar then polish and then wax when I had my Impala SS but man I'm just lucky to keep up with the scratches these days!

I just used Scratch X 2.0 to start fixing a big trunk scratch... I need to go over it again but it looks way better. Makes me upset to think about it but the folks that clean the parking garage at my work put a nasty scratch on my trunk lid and fender (like 3 feet) back in November.

My paint is never going to look great I just try to keep the thing from looking too shabby considering I put 350 miles a week on it year round.

i also use ice detailer with a micro fiber cloth and too be honest i only use them one or twice then the rags get demoted to house rags .and i also change my wash mitt every two times or sometimes only once .black is the worst color and show a lot of scratches .

I have used this for years with no complaints. I typically use only Meguiar's of Mothers on anything I care about.

My Impala SS was black so I know all about it, the Impala didn't have any crystal pearl to throw you off either!

If you remember the name of the 3m stuff let me know. I did the Scratch X 2.0 by hand and gradually I didn't want to take off too much clear coat. It looks so much better but in the sunlight Friday I could totally still see it big time just not from 20 feet like before!

It would take me a week to treat all of the sratches, I walk a fine line because I can be a real neat freak but I've learned to let it go somewhat you have to with a daily driver unless you live alone and can maintain it daily.
