    I've had my black e500 for about 2 months now. When I first got it I did the whole zaino thing. I wasn't really impressed by it and want to try something else. What is a good combination of specific products to use on a black car? I really want to go for the deep wet look. Thanx. :)

    How deep and how much do you want to pay? ;)

    Pinnacle's Sooveran Paste Wax is a very deep and wet looking wax but it is $70 for an 8 ounce jar. You can probably wax your car 25-30 times with just one jar though.

    S100/P21S or Carnauba Moose will get you very close to Souveran for a lot less money.

    The real key to black is the prep. Without a flawless finish (or as close as humanly possible), no wax will look it's best. Go through the stickys and if you have any more questions after that, post them here.

    Thanx for the advice scottwax. Today I stopped by the local harley-davidson store and picked up some s100. It worked great. Now I just need to try the pinnacle paste wax. Too bad you're not located in so cal. :)

    I'd skip Pinnacle Paste Glaz, the look is very similar to S100. If you want to use a Pinnacle wax, pony up the $70 and get Souveran.
