    Best cleaner/wax combo or AIO for me

    Hi,

    Recently bought a new 2016 Mazda Miata. It's white. Paint is in great condition, accept for some very light swirls/spider webbing under fluoresent light....or sun light if you look really hard. I assume that's normal for a new car?

    What cleaner and wax combo do you suggest to correct issues, or AIO cleaner wax? Beauty is number 1 wax priority. Not as concerned about durability.

    Will be applying by hand. Thanks!

    White wax gets good reviews.

    Fixing defects by hand will be tough. It's just hard work. I would tend to want Ult. Compound to do anything by hand, but hard work.

    As far as just detailing, White Wax, or White Wax followed by a wax like Ult. Wax would be great.

    Of course claying first....

    There's no need to apply any other product over #6 if you use it regularly. However, you can apply Gold Class, Ultimate Wax or M26, depending on the results you desire.

    Comes down to personal preference. It is fine to apply something longer lasting over it. Ultimate Wax or Paint Protect 365 would be good choices. Just know that their longevity will be affected as it will be bonding to the layer of wax left behind by M6.

    Now that you mention your goal is the best protection from the elements, I'd recommend considering the same choices as Guz, either Ultimate Wax or Paint Protect 365. A6 Cleaner Wax, while being the product I recommend most often to the average Joes who just want an easy to apply and remove product, isn't the most durable in the Meguiar's line. If you have the opportunity to refresh it every month or so it will get you through a winter.
    I've got PP365 on two of the family fleet and though winter hasn't hit us hard yet, I'm pleased with how it's holding up so far, 6 and 7 weeks respectively on cars that are driven daily and live outside 24/7 in Western PA. Another option you have is to use Ultimate Quik Wax periodically to boost the longevity. My 3rd family DD, which didn't get coated with PP365, gets spritzed with UQW every other weekly wash job, as it's getting dried.
