Mineral White - Wash/Wax Help

Sold my M3 and have recently purchased a mineral white E93, never owned a white car before so was wondering what is the best way to keep it clean so that I still see the pearlesant qualities in the paint.

I just need a good wash and wax, nothing expensive please as I wash it every week.

If you're looking at just performing the basics, then clay the entire vehicle, give it a light polish and put a nice wax on there like a Swissvax Blau Weiss.

For washing, just buy some Meguiar's Gold Class.

Great!, I still have a clay bar left and some Meguirs Gold Class but how would you go about polishing the car ?, is it really necessary after claying ??

polishing is the key so if you can do it it will enhance the color.

If you want to do it right, then yes. But you will need a machine polisher, the correct pads and of course the polish itself. And an free afternoon!
