Was cleaning up the wifes black convertible and was thinking giving it nice coat of wax soon. The dealership put something on it but I have no idea what it was. I'd like to do it myself with a quality product so I have my own baseline. Are products like these any good or is it best to just stick with a quality brand of carnauba? Here's a couple of examples from Maguiar's.

I've heard decent results from black wax for black paint. not sure about any other colors. I actually almost picked up one of the "Jet black kit"s from Turtle this weekend. Walmart had them on clearance for $3.00 o_O

I used that stuff back in the day when it first came out. Didn't really do anything more than regular wax. I think it's a marketing gimmick.

I've seen some good results, but mostly from paint jobs that are 10+ years old and faded to grey. I think if the hue is still on point, it's not going to really do anything over a good wax.

Its looks pretty good for a factory paint job, but I was reminded just how unforgiving black can be. Spent most of this past weekend just focusing on the soft-top. Sounds like when I'm ready to lay down the wax I can just use the same stuff I use on the Vette.
