What kind of wax do you use?

I was using Mothers California gold for about 9 years. I switched over to Turtle Wax Ice today. I used the liquid. Thats the stuff that leaves no white residue on plastic. What great stuff. Shines up my plastic nicely. Here are a couple of pics of the Spectra after I did it. It has a great shine to it.

I've used MER for many a year now, simple & easy to use with a great LONG LASTING shine compared to others I used before.

Owned 5 Carens as cabs, 3 x Mk2's & 2 x Mk3's & a Kia Magentis 2.0, all diesel & all worked hard for their living! Now got a 2014 Soul 1.6hdi auto in Mixx trim.

I use mother's Cali Gold and have for like 13 years. I just used the Ice stuff but wasn't too impressed. It didn't last as long as I thought it would. I might go back to using the Dupont Teflon wax that I used once for a touch up coat after I put the good stuff on. I have to claybar my car too. I will never buy another black vehicle as long as I live. Unless it's a garage/weekend car and I'm retired. LOL.
