8 Best Wax & Polish for White Cars Including Silver and Light Coloured

Poorboys White Diamond show glazeAre you looking for the best car polish for white cars and/or wax product for your silver or light coloured paintwork? It is a question that we get asked at least once or twice a week and as the owner of a white coloured car myself, I know what a pain it can be to keep it looking gleaming all year round.

The problem, especially with white is how to get that deep wet look shine in the first place and then to have last as long as possible.

As with many things the quality of the finished look is mainly in the preparation, but there are a number of products that come top of our list to give you that mirror like shine – even on white.

Although very popular in many of the large motor stores, the polishes and waxes with added colourants, including the whites often do not really cut it in terms of the shine they are able to deliver.

You have to remember that many of todays modern cars have a clearcoat layer on top of your coloured paint and it is this that you are polishing and waxing to bring through the brightness of the colour underneath.

Thus adding a colour on-top can have the opposite effect.

Here is our top 8 list of the best car polish for white cars and wax products for your white, silver or light coloured car:
