I'm sure the lighting helps a bit, but that is an AMAZING shine. It almost makes me wish for a darker color car.

Give us more details on what you did to get that shine.

I guess the darker the car the better the shine? The black cars always look beautiful when washed and waxed, but I understand they are difficult to maintain. I'm hoping that the sparkling graphite will be the best of both worlds--good shine and lower maintenance.

Hi everyone,

P21S is a car care products from Germany.
Being introduced to US market since 1984.
Ranked #1 in paste wax.
Contain Brazillian #1 yellow Carnauba and Bees wax

I bought P21S car care kit from www.autogeek.net. I do not have this brand marketed in my country so I give P21S a shot to see whether it's worth my money......And look what P21S did to me, sored eyes.......

How I get this shine?.......Just wash your car like you normally do....then use the paintwork cleansing lotion.......after that apply the P21S wax, leaveit on the paint for a minute and wipe it off immediately with a clean microfiber cloth........
As simple as that..... :rocks:

Hi BMW__E90,

I'm no expert but I think the cleansing lotion doesn't remove the swirl marks. It just clean the surface of the paint before the waxing process....

You might need something like the swirl removal to get rid of those marks....
