    I have recently got my new S3 in Ibis white. now i have had a couple of cars in white and generally get good results, list of what i use

    Snow foam
    Was 2 bucket
    Sometimes autoglym srp
    Zymol Hd cleanse
    Zymol Glasur 2 coats (very low so need to find something new)
    poorboys wheel sealant
    megs endurance trye dressing

    i have been thinking though that it would be nice to try a sealant of some sort in the summer just to give a slightly deeper maybe more wet look on the white paint, problem being i have used the Zymol stuff that long i haven't really got much of an idea about glazes or sealants etc...Bear in mind i do need to renew lots of stuff so dont mind a complete change or just combine something with what i have, i also have a da polishing machine if this helps..

    Thanks for any advice

    Jetseal 109 is a good quality sealant that makes my red A3 look nice and glossy, then I use wax over the top for durability. There may be more suitable sealants for ibis, but if you search through the threads for an Ibis detail you should find what you're looking for.

    Werkstatt is apparently superb for Ibis. I've not tried it, and it looks a bit expensive, but the results do look good - far more reflection and depth than I've got out of mine.

    Sealants are definitely the way to go - I'm not 100% sure on the science behind it, but it's something along the lines of the molecules bonding better to either the paint or to each other, giving a flatter surface which reflects light better. More layers are meant to be good for adding depth.

    Werkstat Acrylic Jett is really good stuff I use it on my Ice Silver and brother uses it on his Ibis and both get really good results!!! £17 a bottle from Polished Bliss. A mate of mine buy the Werkstat Prime as well and it seems to be a good product. Have a look at Polished Bliss website.

    I didn't see the acrylic jett at £17 a bottle - £60 for the set from PB looked too expensive at this stage, but I can probably manage £17... gonna have to give it a go now, since I recommended it :p

    I used Chemical Guys Wet Mirror Finish and Chemical Guys Lava on a Candy white Seat Leon a few weeks ago after an enhancement detail - gave it a nice wet look I thought
