Coloured Car Wax or Coloured Polish?

Recommended Posts

I was talking to car body repair guy this week about the stone chips on the plastic bumper of my car and he suggested using a coloured polish (or he might have said coloured wax). Which will it be?

Does polish go on the car first, followed by wax? I've just found this product 'Turtle Wax 52709 Color Magic Car Paintwork Polish Restores Colour & Shine Blue 500ml' Any other recommendations?

My car is very dark blue metallic, so would blue be the right choice or should I go for Black?

Will be a polish. It's just full of coloured filler and is temporary at best. You would need to wax / sealant on it after but it would fail quickly. Best to just touch them up.

A friend who is a superb car body man always says to use the black Turtle Wax on mine which is dark blue. It really does make a difference with very minor marks, but stone chips are too deep, so as suggested they need proper touching up.

Thanks Lee and Phil. The chips in question are pin-prick size, lots of them, very low down on the bumper so I'll try the black Turtle Wax and see how it goes.

Depending on how precious you are about your car I find a Sharpie is the best quick fix for stone chips. Touch up paint is always a blob, coloured polish washes off almost immediately and a respray is expensive. Break out the permanent marker.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
