Most reflective wax for SSM?

For all you people that own SSM Civics, what wax do you use?

I use the Meguirs High-Tech yellow show car wax, comes out pretty good but I would like something more glossier/reflective. I've also used Meguirs Gold Class but the high-tech seems to come out better.

What do you guys use and hows the out come?

civicdude will become famous soon enough
Dude....I used to hate the fact that my SSM civic wouldnt shine like other cars. Your not really ever going to get that reflective shine out of a silver car....Just enjoy the look that you get now, because I dont see it becoming any better.

Unfortunately he is right. Light colored cars do not have as reflective shine as dark colors. The most reflective shine I have ever seen is Zaino and Liquid Glass. Liquid Glass is MUCH cheaper and easier to find, and the difference in shine is not noticeable to me.

I use mothers carnauba wax and I can get my car to really have a reflective shine. If it doesnt work for u use the 3 step process with Mothers. It really works. I might do it this weekend if I do I'll post pics so u can see that light color cars can look just as good as dark color cars. It just takes a lot more work.

I use meguiar's yellow wax all the time. I recently took it in for a detail (compliments of dealer screwup) and it looks much shinier at night.

That's true it's just painstaking trying to do the 3 step with not too much shiny results. just waxed car left the carnauba wax for the night (it rained) hopefully buff it tomorrow. maybe i'll try another brand other than meguiars
