    Recommended polish for White?

    Took a massive leap of faith today and used kitchen Cif on my car. To start with I was bricking it but quickly noticed the Astra was back to diamond White. But I used Turtle Wax Ice to polish it and it just looked really flat. It's fine on metallic black but didn't work for White. Anyone know a good polish for a good shine?

    Not cif for starters.
    A good paint cleanser for really getting the paint creaking clean and as near original colour is serious performance paint cleanser.
    Follow this with fk1000p or collinite 476s/marque de elegance and it will look better.
    Other choices would be dodo juice lime prime and either light fantastic which is developed for white/light colours or supernatural wax.

    Cheers. I'll have a look at some of those and give a couple a go. Need to get the rear arches done then i can give it a good machine polish, clay and wax. The Cif as barmy as it sounds, really brought it back to life I wouldn't recommend using it all the time as it does dig in to the paint but it really got the crap out of it. It does only work on White though. I would never use it on any other colour.
