    I personally wouldn't go for white, been there done that. Also, I find white a bugger to detail as you can't see where you have polished and waxed, at least black its clearer to see the panels you have done.

    Only really meet up at organised meets to be honest mate. Yourself, like me are in a good position for 3 different regions, East Anglia, South East, and Beds, Bucks & Herts. Keep an eye out on the regional forums for more info on local meets etc.

    ..that has cross my mind, my last car was black and as
    you said very easy to see whats been done. hopefully get some time this
    weekend to spend some time on the car, so will let you know after how
    well i got on.

    most of my gear all leans to black cars, which polish & wax would you
    suggest for white.??

    Have a look here mate, tells you what you should be using in terms of polish and wax etc:

    http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...d.php?t=167625

    White
    Polish - Swissvax Cleaner Fluid, Auto Glym Super Resin Polish

    LSP - Zaino Z2Pro with ZFX Flash Cure Accelerator, Poorboy's World EX-P, Chemical Guys Jetseal 109, Dodo Juice Light Fantastic
    Pictures of White Astra's/Zafs: http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/showthread.php?t=143587

    I use myself, Auto Glym Super Resin Polish, then Megs Stage 3 Carnauba Wax, which when it has run out, I will be replacing it with either Pete's53 or Collinite 915!

    I think Ultra Deep Shine, it does recommend on the bottle for use with dark coloured cars.
