I have had my TLX for a couple of weeks now.I am wanting to wax this beautiful car. Which wax do you TLX owners use? i have used Mothers on my Accords. Is there one that stands out better than Mothers? Thanks , Bobbo1234

I've always use Mcguiars Gold Glass Carnuba wax with really nice results.

Last year I got a bit more ambitious and used a polish called HD Polish and then a wax called Collinite 845. The results were amazing.

Before I polish and wax, I always decontaminate and then use a clay bar. However, since the car is new those steps can probably be skipped.

I actually meant to attach that to the previous post. Not sure how it got its separate post. Regardless this is after the HD Polish and then Collinite 845.

Used Menzerna Power Lock over the weekend, went on and off easy and looks great, super slick after clay barring. Hoping it lasts for a little while. Planning a long road trip at the end of october so I may put a fresh coat of PL on then.

We'll need pictures.

I usually put a coat on the front of the car before going on long trips. It helps when trying to get the bugs off.

Hard to get pics of white looking very showcar-like without proper lighting but these are just some iphone pics.
The shots of the rear were right after it lightly rained and I had to wipe it dry again.

Call me old school, I like anything with Carnuba and for a new car anything without rubbing compounds.

I'll start out with a wash/clay then a polish with meguires 205 (105 if there is heavy marring) then a coat or two of blackfire wet diamond, for it to last a coat of meguires pure carbuna wax keeps it longer. I find that on darker cars i get amazing reflection /wet look but on the white it's not as noticeable.

i'm going to give this a try:



i normally like liquid waxes but i'll give it a shot.

I use Barrett Jackson liquid wax, it doesn't leave any residue dust on the car at all.

after a lot of reading i decided not to go with the chem.guys white wax.

i decided once i get the car back from the body shop to try the fire over ice combo. i already seal with blackfire wet diamond but now i'm going to seal with their blackfire midnight sun (who comes up with these names? lol) carnuba.
