Just washed and dried today for the first time. It got dark and the tires were still wet so I couldn't put on tire dressing. Went back later at night with my fluorescent light tube and couldn't believe all the "stuff" on the paint. Folks you have got to clay and polish before you wax preffably with a DA. I polish with the DA and wax by hand. Just me. Yes I washed with a good car wash, Meguiars Gold, 2 bucket method and dried with microfiber. Next wash it will be done right.
