This Best Car Wax Review is designed to help you cut through the endless maze of advertising and marketing in choosing a quality car wax.
The reality is that the car care industry has most of us chasing our tails endlessly in search of the next "shiny object" that will separate you from your money!
While many of you out there may look for excuses to wax your car, most of us just want an easy to use car wax product that will deliver exceptional results without breaking the bank! But finding the best car wax in today's world of endless choices will often come down to your own personal tastes and the nuances of the specific brand of car wax you ultimately choose.
"Darren, I am tired of this endless search for the best car wax! Everyone has a different opinion and the detail forums are filled with one so-called exert after another! Does it really have to be this complicated!"
So often I am simply asked "What would you do Darren?" So I am going to start with that.
"The best car wax to me is the car wax that you are willing to use more often, not less often"
Let me throw some logic and critical thinking your way.
Many guys read one best car wax review after another and often decide upon a rather expensive paste or liquid wax that seems like the best car wax. Only to find that the wax never makes it onto their car past the fist use as the wax has proven more difficult to put on and/or take off.
This wax then sits on your garage shelf collecting dust rather than making it onto your car paint.And it is for this reason that I offer up my favorite, sure-thing wax that represents not only an amazing winning balance of features, but the wax I find I am willing to use very often, not less often!
Darren's Tip: For super easy use, I simply spray this directly onto clean paint, wipe on with micro-fiber cloth, then flip cloth over and buff to perfection. I apply one section of the car at a time and work my way around the car. Simply make adjustments as needed based on the temperature of the paint, in direct sunlight versus cool,shaded paint.
If you want the ultimate in protection and gloss, you can follow the following tips:
CSI Q-7 Detailer Quart 62-205-Q
Darren's Tips: Use the Q-7 Detailer first to create a base "primer" before applying the Q-7 Wax. Simply use an applicator like the one below, spray the Q-7 Detailer onto applicator then apply in any pattern (circular, back and forth, etc) onto entire paint surface without removing. You will see a slight haze.
Now use a second applicator and spray the Q-7 Wax directly onto applicator and apply directly over the Q-7 Detailer haze. (once again, use any application pattern you want: circular, back and forth, etc.) Allow the Q-7 Wax to fully dry (this is important. Since it is waterborne technology, you want the water to completely evaporate to leave all the carnauba and active ingredients remaining before you wipe off)

Like every other area of life, advances in technology, chemistry, and manufacturing have made all our lives better; such is the case with surface car care. Now waxing your car is easier than ever due to so many quality products being available; it is hard to go wrong!
Unfortunately we are also buried in an endless amount of choices all screaming at us with slick marketing and advertising!
Many of you feel like you are chasing your tail....and the car care industry is all too willing to keep the chase going!
Many of you in search for the best car wax will simply have unrealistic expectations. The best car wax review is not going to help if you do not understand a few very basic and simple facts when it comes to the appearance and protection of your car's paint:
