(Searched and did not find an existing thread here, and very little on autopia....I'm guessing this might be a new product.)
I'm a fan of the old fashioned way: clay bar, Scratch X, polish, wax, etc. All Meguires products. Have not used anything Turtle Wax in a decade or two.
However, this product comes highly recommended to me from a friend who is a perfectionist when it comes to his cars, including his black 2008 Lexus and black 2006 Audi. He says this is great for black cars.
Anyone here tried it?
An all-in-one solution to one of the most frequently asked questions in car care: What should I use on my black car? The Black Box is a unique blend of newly developed products and the process gives the deepest, wettest black shine.
Can be used to protect a new finish as well as restore the clarity of an older neglected black finish.
One-of-a-kind black tinted pre-cleaner and conditioner removes scratches, swirl marks and surface contaminants.
The pre-cleaner is quickly and easily removed with the unique black tinted spray detailer, fortified with micronized carnauba, preparing the surface for waxing.
Hand or machine application.
12 oz. Pre-Wax Cleaner
12 oz. Black Carnauba Wax
12 oz. Spray Detailer

havent seen it in stores....but come to think of it Black wax...on a clear coat WTF It reminds me of their other product Turtle wax color magic which is the same basic idea and if you look around in forums, people seem to hate it.
I bought it at Pep Boys. 20 bucks. Not bad. Not a bad process. No white residue. Shine like a motha, but as far as lasting... not so good. The spay is like a tinted black quik detailer and the wax dries a greysih black so when you take it off it doesnt leave the white in all the cracks. Great if you are looking for a deep rich shine that doesnt last. By the second car wash it's loosing its impact.
50/50 on the return for the dollar. Good for a short term deep shine.
Oh... you have to use the detailer to get it off, if not its a bitch.

Typically these type of "black car cure alls" use fillers to mask the swirls, and right after you have used it,it looks great,but all you have done is cover up the flaws that are still there.Mazda paint is very easy to swirl up/scratch,but it is also easy to work with to fix the swirls.This is what I used on my Brilliant black Miata.
I use a Flex,but a Porter Cable will work also, just a little more time consuming.With Pinnacle swirl remover/orange pad.
Followed with Menzera Nano polish/white pad.
Finished with either Poor Boys Ex-Sealant or Wolfgang sealant.
And a high quality wax on top is up to you if you so choose for a deeper shine.But not that noticable after the Menzerna.There is a reason companies try these black car one stops,black is frustrating to work on,and it shows everything.It is a long process to keep it looking perfect but the results are well worth it,if done right.
