Default HELP with Black Magic wet shine wax!

So I decided to try a new wax on my JBP STi. I've been using Meguires Tech Wax for years and loved it, but reading the latest consumer reports I figured I could try their #1 pick: Black Magic Wet Shine. So I just washed her and waxed the entire car... no problems until trying to wipe the excess wax off. It won't come off! It looks terrible.. water marks look worse and the haze is TERRIBLE. i tried with just a towel and my hands, then with a micrfiber wax buffer, which worked a little better, but the results still suck. any suggestions?

did you try and buff it off in the sun? that will make it nearly impossible to get off without any hazing. Especially with a black car, always do this stuff in the shade. I don't have any experience with the stuff you are using. I own a professional detailing business on the side and use a lot of poorboys products which are great in the hot sun, even on black.

Maybe it's just the product you are using, check out www.autopia.org and www.autogeek.net for mucho info and the absolute best products you can buy

How much of the blackfire stuff did you use? If you used too much that is why it is hard to get off. Also, what kind of buffer are you using? If it is a cheapo one you might be marring the finish of the paint.

I would just wash the car again to see if the stuff will come off.

Also, I would not go by consumer reports suggestion on a car wax/sealant. Go here instead. www.autopia.org

see if you can wash it off with dish soap first before you go through the hassle of clay-barring.
