Regular polish and wax eg Sonax xtreme brilliant wax 1, is good enough for new paintwork.

Polish it every 2-3 months is sufficient. Come 5 years, just respray same colour cost about $1k.

Don't be conned by all the PPS bullShit, the factory clear coat lacquer don't last over 4 years.

Agree totally. PPS regardless of brand is total bullshit.

Another Bullshit that is often mention is that a super well polished good looking car will fetch high resale value.

I used Autoglym. Polished myself super shag. 3-4 layers but will be shiny shiny. New to take car cos my cars are either black or white. Owned grey before. Easier to take care. Haha

Tried CS2, their normal and glass coating. Both last ard 6 month due to Sg weather. Only thing is glass coating is more shining when it came out from the workshop.

Other than that, not a single one Polish works. Those carpark Polish ie at Marinsa Square and Paya Lebar Singpost. I tried before and took package with them when I work there. Waste of them. Almost need to go back fortnightly. Get dull after 2 rains.

I paid ToughSeal (Yishun) for the job. Basically in the name of no time for periodic polishing.
