How would you rate the Sonax wax compared to other popular waxes(Autoglym HD, Meguiar's etc.) out there including waxes you have used in the past? I'm in the market for a good wax that would leave a really nice shine and some good protection without breaking my wallet in half.

My paint is aged and looking a bit faded lately. It's that 74F World Rally Blue.

The car is a 1998 that I imported from Japan last year so not sure how long that paint's been on there. It's possible it may have even been the paint it left the factory with.

I have noticed swirls lately, but they do not appear to be too deep. To be honest I started noticing them late last year after some amateur tried to use a machine polisher on the car.

I've been thinking of using Meguiar's Ultimate Compound(considering buying this) on this and then the Meguiar's Color X(I currently have this) and then finish it off with some Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0. I don't have a machine polisher as yet so I try to use products that work ok with hand use.

But after following your threads for a while now and looking more and more into detailing I'm becoming very interested in different things.

I have no idea if there is a clear coat or not. Honestly it doesn't look that way and if there is it's probably a very very thin one ....

By chance have you guys tried or had any kind of experience with the Meguiar's Ultimate Compound?

if you try to wax or polish the car by hand does the paint transfer to your mf towel.

Not really... I haven't polished the car in a while but I think maybe a little bit does... It does appear on the applicator pad I use to polish though.
