Couple of questions about detailing a dark lue car with pearlcoat.

I have a dark blue pearlcoat car and I've been doing alot of research online about detailing specific colors. I know zaino is very popular. My main question is since my car has a pearlcoat, carnuba wax supposedly dulls the shiney bits of pearl in the coat but at the same time gives it a nice deep gloss. There was another kind of wax (this is my question) that supposedly make the sparkles in the clear coat stand out more and gave the paint a more shiney look. This is the stuff Im looking for, its the other kind of wax, if you guys could post some specific brands with product numbers that would be great. Thanks

I've posted this before...

Do I have the Car Telephone Preparation (SA640) option installed?

The way to check if you've got it installed is to select the menu option on your radio and goto the Tel option. If you don't have that you probably don't have it.

If you want to know for sure, goto the dealer and ask him/her to print out your vehicle configuration information from you VIN number. This will tell you exactly what is installed in your car. It also shows you the Production Date

Hope this helps...
