    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, Jen?

    Wow...umm lets see here. These are my waxes, polishes or washes with wax included:

    - Poorboy’s World Black Hole Show Glaze
    - Chemical Guys: Butter Wet Wax
    - Chemical Guys: Body Wash & Wax
    - Chemical Guys: Citrus Wash & Gloss
    - Chemical Guys: Gloss Worx
    - Collinite #845
    - Collinite #915
    - Collinite #476
    - Smartdetail Quick Detailer
    - Menzerna PF2500
    - Menzerna FF 4000
    - Autoglym Super Resin Polish
    - Meguiars Cleaner Wax
    - Meguiars Deep Crystal Carnauba Wax

    Now, I know any of these can be used on my car, but having tried one or two I'm not noticing huge differences in finish between them so I've started to look for products made for white/lighter cars.

    Tbh White is a bit of a funny colour....do you work just by hand or have a machine?

    I've recently acquired a DA polisher. Still getting to grips with it as it's a daunting task considering the possible damage that can be done :p

    Managed to do a fairly decent light correction on a mate's black Beemer using the Menzerna products above and some Lake Country pads
