Polishes & Waxes

Is there better polishes and waxes for certin color vehicals? or do they all just do the same job on any color? Because i have a black s10 Xtreme and the paint is still glossy and nice but i want it too look better and i was wondering if they make a certin polish and wax that will make the black stand out more than the normal.

Thanks..

They do make polishes that are aimed at dark colored cars. Pretty much it is all hype IMO. A black car requires a polish with a very low abrasives content to reduce swirl marks. Mecquires and 3M both have an excellent polish line. Stay away from any polish that has silicone in it.

Are you saying to avoid silicones because of new paint? Or do you say to avoid polishes with silicones for old cars as well? If so, can you explain why?
Thanks, I'm just curious.

Silicone and paint do not mix. Once you apply silicone to your paint, it is almost impossible to remove it, which makes future repairs a pain. I do not use any Armor All products for that very reason. A quality wax or polish will not have any silicone in it. IMO the inclusion of silicone in a wax or polish is the sign of a cheap (low quality) product.
