Anyone ever heard or used colored wax?

My neighbor recommended me to start using some colored wax on a part that is kind of fading on my red v6. Anyone ever heard of this stuff?? Does it actually work?

It will fill very small scratches in the paint, but since most new cars are clear coated I don't think it works all that great.

Can't really tell from the pic, but I would guess no.
It looks like your clear coat has crazed?


It's fairly cheap, so maybe give it a try anyways.

That white are is from the red particles slowly flaking off in little specs like glitter.

Then it is worn through the clear coat and the base coat is shot.
The color wax isn't going to help with that, the only option is to repaint.

If you are handy with a spray can, you could temporarily fix it with some Dupli-Color.
Get a can of color matched paint, some blender and some clear coat.

Some chance. I've had fair luck with the Dupli-Color and blender in the past.
An expert should be able to do it or it may be cheaper for them to just paint the whole door if they can match the paint.
