read on another forum just that apparently wax such as p21s is no good on my black magic golf as it has carnaba wax in and this is not sutable for pearl cars? anyone know why not?

No idea, and in any case all modern car paint finishes have a clearcoat on top, so you're not really waxing the paint anyway...

Not sure where you heard that one! never heard that before! lol

Been using clearkote cab wax on my black magic car for 3 years now, never a problems. It has helped it retain its look more than anything else. And guess what, my new MK5 GTI will be the same colour and I will use cab clearkote wax on that too, although it will be diamond brite'd when I first get it.

Dont think you anything to worry about mate.

This is how rumours start! lol

It will be totally fine on any black car... You will just get a deaper "wet" shine if you use cab wax on a flat black car as it does not have any metallic "flake" in the paint.

Essex, that looks spanking mate!!! What did you use for that? Im getting some P21s at the w/e for my reflex silver car, im thinking of getting some Clearkote de-swirler stuff for before the waxing is that recommended or not worth it?

I can recommend the hand glaze, it will remove a few swirls and hide the rest. Has a small amount of wax in it too which will leave you a nice smooth later for application of the P21s wax!

Enjoy it!
