Re: Car Wax Re: Audi A4 questions

I'm sure that Turtle Wax works really well, but if you want the best stuff
on the market get Meguiar's.  It may take all day, but it pays off.  This
stuff can even take out the swirls that the dealers put onto cars(at least
the American cars).  It does consist of several coats of differant
compounds, but I garentee it's worth.
