      Polishing between waxes removes it

          Then if you know why do you do it? Polishing does nothing to the finish at all , waxing seals the polished finish in. Its a total waste of time and leaving bare paintwork open to the elements. if your going to polish your wax off whats the point?

            I have a boy on my Facebook with a focus and he'll do a status about polishing it twice a week

            I do wax mine 3 times a year, twice in the spring/summer and something durable like colly 476s once for autumn/winter months

                It's not difficult to use, it's just more work than polish

                    I would say every 4-6 weeks in the spring-summer-autumn where possible and then just the once for all of winter.

                          i wax the car 3 times a year, after its been striped down of all the products it had on off the previous months, but keep it toped up now with zaino Z8 every week after a wash .

                              I know mate just not had the time to get it off the road and do it, its like my work van so to speak so never out of service

                              It will need a week in the garage to get it blinging again but i have a capri to restore a mk1 fiesta to restore and my astra gte to do this year as well so the audi doesnt look like he will be getting in the garage anytime soon
