    My dad just recently bought an 04 porsche 911 gt3...bright red in color, just about time to be waxed/polished & detailed, scottwax or someone else, what would you recommend for a bright red paint finish with black interior that is going to give this car a slick and wet look to it?

    :noes: also for me, any suggestions for somethign to make my scion metallic flake paint pop just a little more?

    Polishing makes a lot more difference than wax.

    Polish gives the paint a smooth consistent shine, wax just brings out the gloss. If you just wax and don't polish first, you'll regret it. Do it right and you'll impress yourself so much, you'll never do it differently. Good luck!

    for an artificial shine add some glaze to the mix
