I seem to remember some folk praising a particular polish for black cars which gave excellent results. I don't want to go all DW but I just cannot recall the brand/name.

+1 for black hole!

 

I used to find that Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine, then black hole, then wax (nattys blue for me) gave superb results, when I eventually get round to giving the Meriva a long needed clean its what I'm going to use!

Wren's Dubbin or Cherry Blossom Black.

 

Brush on and rub off with old newpapers.

 

Don't use mum's new pack of yellow dusters - she'll go spare.

I use that on my scratched-to-buggery black daily when the scratches start to annoy me. Cheap n'cheerful.
What's a poor boy's black hole? Sounds all kinds of wrong.

"The "i" on the back of my Cavalier tells everyone I've made it.
It stands for "i" am "i"ncredible, "i"mportant, and it means everyone
has to get out of my way. I don't pull over for anything.
Unless it has headlamp washers because that means it's an SRi
and he's more important than my GLi.
Then I pull over and nod to let him know he's more important than me."

On the rare occasion I polish these days, meguiars gold class seems pretty good.

That Mr Sheen can made me think "Shifts shields and shines in sheconds "
