I agree, Turtle Wax Ice!

You'll never get water spots with it either! The 1st rain, water spots usually are the 1st thing that ruins a new wax job.

But, it doesn't last long on the flat black exterior surface

Some previous Hyundai/Kia vehicles: 2002 Santa Fe LX V6 AWD, 2005 Tucson LX V6 AWD, 2010 Tucson GLS 2.4L AWD, 2011 Sportage EX 2.4L AWD, 2015 Sorento Ex V6 AWD

The day I get it home because the paint will never be in better condition.


First I clean with foam from my foam canon attached to my Karcher pressure washer and use a micro mitt. I never use a high pressure stream of water on a vehicle.
DP Xtreme Foam Formula High Yield Foaming Auto Shampoo- Foamaster gun car wash
Results for foam - Search

Once dry I use Klasse All in One cleaner/polish on the first coat. Second coat is Klasse acrylic glaze.
Klasse Car Care Products, Klasse Detailing Products, Klasse Sealant, klasse all in one
