    My Golf TDI came with "Indigo Blue Pearl" paint, and I was just curious if there are any special tips you guys could offer to keep it looking it's best.

    It seems to be difficult to get a nice deep shine out of it. Are there any special products I should be using, or should I just keep layering the S100? :dunno:

    Layering of wax does nothing, 2 coats is plenty. Anything else is a waste of time and product. Check the stickies at the top, and search the forum. There are dozens of threads regarding products and detailing tips, regardless of your paint color.

    Vanilla Moose and S100 look amazing on blue pearl.

    EMT is right. 2 layers of S100 is enough.

    You can layer if you want, but once you have two coats of S100 on the paint, you reach a point of diminishing returns. What you might want to try is using Vanilla Moose and S100 the next time, then 1 week later, put on a second layer of S100. Just repeat this every two to three months.
