Question Tonic Blue Metallic Focus - Recommended Polish?

Hello,

I have just taken delivery of my 56 plate Focus TDCi in Tonic.....does anybody have any recommendations for a good polish to use...one that enhaces and protects the colour if possible.

Thanks in anticipation

David

.....already!

Welcome to Focus Fanatics!!

I have had my best results from Meguiar's Mirror Glaze. Do the three step process - cleaner wax, polish, and carnuba wax for the protector. If you have a buffer, it goes on easier, put it on with the buffer, take it off with the buffer (different bonnet), change bonnets and do the next step.

You will love the shine when you are done.

But you will get different answers here. This is the method I like.

Thanks very much....Halford's over here in the UK stock a good range of their products, so might give it a go.
Do you know the name of the exact products that you use, and are they just general (non-colour specific) products?

Cheers

David
