    Sprint Blue

    Anyone recommend a good polish for Sprint Blue? I'll only be hand polishing as i don't have a machine as of yet.

    Autoglym super resin polish is good value for money. Poorboys black hole is good for coloured cars, however its more of a glaze than a polish.

    Poorboys black hole is for dark colours. Is Sprint Blue counted as a dark colour? Autoglym super resin polish it is unless anyone else uses something else?

    I think so yeah, their glaze come in two sorts, white diamond which is for white/silver cars, then black hole which is for darker coloured cars, I have used white diamond on my silver car with amazing results, not used the black hole stuff but if its anything like the white diamond then its really good.

    But the Autoglym super resin polish is excellent value for money, its like £8 for 500ml.

    The thing is you'll never get people to agree on cleaning products, especially waxes/glazes/polishes. Ask Juicy Jen aswell because she'll be able to direct you to products more suitable to your car colour.

    check out my sprint blue s3:
    Audi S3 Sprint Blue Detailed - YouTube

    polished by hand:
    claybar
    meg compound
    smartwax
    smart sealant
    smart concourse

    these were the products used. if you dont wanna buy them all
    then would deffo clay it, smartwax is good for windows and paint, and use the sealant.
