    Recommended products for my Ibis White S3?

    So I've become quite the avid detailer with my last 2 cars, but this new S3 has me stumped on what to use to get the best shine.

    Why? Because I've got an entire cupboard of products dedicated to getting the most out of dark finishes (had a Dolphin Grey A3 and an Arden Blue OPC/VXR before), but my new car is white!

    Now obviously having a black panoramic roof I don't have to throw my existing products out, but I'm utterly clueless as to what one would use on a white finish like my Ibis White S3 to maximise gloss.

    Any suggestions? I saw the sticky for lighter colour cars, but unfortunately the suggested product is not available in SA.

    Looks like you've got access to chemical guys products where you are so my suggestion would be add some Chemical guys glossworkz glaze instead of the black hole; Chemical guys wet mirror finish and Chemical guys Petes 53 wax

    Awesome. My local online detailing source seems to have all 3 of those.

    Much appreciated! :D
