Hey Everyone,
On my new Z4 I bought I have been using Zaino and Turtle Wax but I have not been to satisfied with either, I spend a lot of time on my cars and
I need something that makes the my car shine like I just bought it. on top of that my BMW was keyed on the side, how could I buff that out?
Thanks,

I used Zymol carbon wax on my wife's black 525i. Actually, I use the whole Zymol process consisting of Clear car wash, HD-Cleanse polish and the wax. The car has a deep mirror like shine that holds up well with minimal care (weekly washing). You can get it from www.bavauto.com .
Black cars in particular show off every water spot that gets left behind. One thing I found that really helps with water spots is to make up a filter for the hose that you rinse the car with. Home Depot sells one for about $30. The pipe thread to hose fittings are about $7 and if you need another short hose to run from your house to the filter another $5. So all together under $50. Removing the sediment from the water before it gets to the car makes a world of difference in preventing the spots from forming and as a result makes drying the car easy.

As per what Kyle says but I use Meguirs and have had great results. Personally I find the cloth used can make quite a difference. I tend to use generic microfibre cloths and have no complaints but then my cars are met. silver and met. blue. Black is a whole new world of (rewarding) problems ;-)

For yet another view, I tried Meguiars Cleaner-Wax on my Black Z3 and did not have good results. Both Zymol Carbon and Creame worked very well so my vote is with Kyle.

Check out Lane's Products, I really like his stuff. I used Meguiars for years until I found Lane's products.

    I like Zymol as well, and have since my Porsche days. Expensive, but worth it - give it a try.     As for the keying, buffing won't help if they went through the paint - you'll need it touched up. Try a mild polish and see where it gets you - lots of times is just the metal of the key on your paint.     epbrown -- 2003 BMW 325i Black/Black 2003 BMW Z4 Black/Black
