Sajeev I have a 2009 black Impala and I plan to keep it a long, long time. I’ve always been a twice-yearly wax guy. Black paint is always different. Should I wax twice yearly? Do I need to buy different wax?
Black paint isn’t different than other colors, aside from its inability to mask any scratch or blemish. As mentioned in my Turtle Wax Black Box review , there are ways to perfect black paint with less effort. I enjoyed this product and would recommend it for your application. Even though it’s a carnauba-based wax, your cool climate (Ontario) is easier on paint protectors and should easily last your twice-a-year regiment. And it makes Black paint look perfect without leaving white residue everywhere. Throw away your detailing toothbrush! Or not.
Then again, cosmetic counseling has opposing views of equal validity. So off to you, Best and Brightest.
