Hi all,

I am new in car detailing, and I wish to seek some advises from sifus here.

I have a pearl white colored car, aged 1.5 years, and it is my daily car. My previous car polish was done 0.5 year ago (at Maximus Kota Damansara).

My questions are:

I wash my car using Meguiars NXT Car Wash once or twice in a week (depends on weather). I drive my car 80km a day, exposed to dust and rain, but mainly parks indoor when I am not using the car.

I wish to maintain the car in this manners :

A
Month 1 - Meguiars NXT Car Wash, PG Clay, Meguiars Cleaner Wax, Meguiars NXT Tech Wax 2.0
Month 2 - x
Month 3 - Meguiars NXT Car Wash, PG Clay, Meguiars Cleaner Wax, Meguiars NXT Tech Wax 2.0
Month 4 - x
Month 5 - Meguiars NXT Car Wash, PG Clay, Meguiars Cleaner Wax, Meguiars NXT Tech Wax 2.0
Month 6 - x
Month 7 - Send to Pro to polish & wax

Or also, B
Month 1 - PG Clay, Meguiars Cleaner Wax
Month 2 - Meguiars Cleaner Wax
Month 3 - Meguiars Cleaner Wax
Month 4 - PG Clay, Meguiars Cleaner Wax
Month 5 - Meguiars Cleaner Wax
Month 6 - Meguiars Cleaner Wax
Month 7 - Send to Pro to polish & wax

Please advise. Thank you.

You want to clean the paint or polish with Megs cleaner wax or with abrasive products as little as possible. If I'm not mistaken its got abrasives in there, minimal or fine abrasives or not, you are still abrading the clear coat. You can do either A or B but replace with a chemical based cleaner AIO (All In One) without abrasives like Duragloss 501 or Klasse AIO. Former you can get from duragloss malaysia, latter you need to order online. Only use abrasive products when the chemical bases one fails to clean or you need to do paint correction.

You don't need to clay too often, only when there is surface contaminants
After every wash, if you can use a topper like DG Aquawax

At 1st I too the Megs CW will remove a very very thin layer of clear coat, but after i researched thru the MOL, they said it is safe to be applied monthly? http://www.meguiarso...oat-every-month

hmmm. Heard alot of good comment on D501, but nvr tried it er
however saw this online, it said D501 is a abrasives and strong cleaner. i guess it not pressed too hard for correction purpose should be alright too?

hmmm. Will have to ask DG and confirm about 501 having abrasives. If it does then Klasse is the only one left I know doesn't have unless they changed formulation.

I am on DG501 too. Yes, is a very good cleaner as in the link you posted but I have tried removing swirls with it but it does not work and have t use something stronger. Maybe if it does have abrasive then must be very very mild...

Mean you clay the side, not whole car? But if tar is dried can remove. If not, it is difficult to remove.
If don't want to use tar remover , can use cleaner wax too.
