Default Wax/Car Polish

Does anyone know of a car wax/polish product that is NOT white??? I have a white car and its a huge pain to wax it b\c I cant see well enough to tell whether its buffed out or not. I always end up leaving some somewhere. Hopefully a company has thought of this by now...

Well they do make colored waxes I think. Turtle wax does. But I don't know if you'd like that. They're meant for the color of the car I guess. (The black wax for black cars, green wax for green cars) it may still work though.

I know what you mean though. Most of the cars I've done have been white and you have to look at it at the right angle to see if there'* any wax left on it. PITA but since I'm anal about that stuff, I get it all off

Turtle Wax Color Cure~ comes in different colors, so depends on the color of your car?

If your car needs a revitalization, like mine did (Hard water spots on paint/wax) I always use a chamois, but still got water spots on the previous wax job. With black paint it was always a hassle.
As recommended from a buddy I tried Meguires Cleaner/Wax....did an awesome job! so would recommend if you want to get that paint back to a great shine!
