    Default Inquiry: 1 month old civic, first wash and wax, recommendations

    Dear pakwheelers,

    I'm about to do first wash of my civic habanero red, kidly recommend the best shampoo, wax and the washing fiber.

    Also that should I wax it now as it's already new and shiny and how often should I wax it?

    And what is the difference between wax and polish, also which one is better?

    you don't need to wax your new car body, as it will lose it's shine when the wax wore off. any shampoo is good but don't use any with dotted ingredients. don't use any cotton or silk fiber for washing purpose.

    Meguiar's #26 Pure Brazilian Carnauba, 2000

    Microfibers 600.

    Wax your car REGULARLY, waxes are to protect the clear coat on the paint from UV, Dirt, Grime, Bird Droppings.

    wax is for protection, polish removes defects i.e it is abrasive.
