I have only used Porsche's plastic window cleaner, which is mediocre at best.

I use Klasse body care products. Best I have every used!

Lexol for the seats and panels.

It fits in the glovebox? Whoah! Seriously, why would you want to always carry your wax with you?

I don't know about the products as I've never used them. I like Plexus for the plastic window and prefer P21S polish and wax over Klasse but there are a lot of great products out there.

Go to http://autopia.org for the nirvana of car detailing and product info.

I keep a duffel bag full of detailing supplies in the front trunk.
Meguiar's Gold Class Wheel brush, Absorber, Several Waffle weave towels, some Sonus Clay, Plexus, Acrylic SPritz, S100 Wax, Carnauba Spritz, 1Z Rubber care(tires), 1Z cockpit cleaner, Klasse VLRP(black plastic), NXT spray wax(wheels), Concours buffing towel.

and that's just what I take with me for my weekly visit to the coin operated wash place. I have a big Stanley tool box full of more brushes, waxes, polishes, protectants etc. oh and can't forget my Porter Cable polisher.


here's a nice pic of S100 Carnauba wax on Black

That shine is amazing...I could see myself through the computer. Just ordered a Porter Cable and I hope mine looks like that. "It's like buttah."

did you notice that's not P21S? Its actually S100 which is the same product just 1/3 the price.

Funny I was just reading a detailing guru who say that on newer Porsches, Carnauba is really only good on Black and Red. He says you are better off layering
an acrylic sealant like Klasse SG. Today's clear coats have made Carnauba waxes unecessary, costly and short lived. He recomended that Newer Porsches be clayed after after washing to restore the paint to full gloss.

I still use S100 after I'm done layering the S100. Last year I did 30 coats over the cours of a month. The S100 went on ever three weeks. Carnauba spritz weekly.

Indeed it is S100, I glanced at it too quickly. I think it's half the price of P21S and I'll probably switch to your flavor when I run out of the P21S (sometime in '08 at my currnet rate). Great shine, 'Lap! I had gone the Klasse route but found I just don't have the time to do layer after layer of SG.
