Waxing the Versa
My brother suggested waxing my car atleast once a month but I dont know which brand I should get. Any suggestions? Input/pics would be appreciated.

Once a month? For a full wax? That is ALOT of waxing.
I wax and clay my Versa in the spring and fall, and use a quik spray on wax in between.

I recommend Meguiar's.

It's recommended you do it twice a year before the summer and the winter so the paint can withstand the harsh environmental debris, fallout from acid rain and exterior elements. Still have to wash the car every other week or whenever it starts showing visible soil.

I second using Meguiar's car wax, it works wonders on black cars. And that sounds about right, because I'm due for another wash/wax treatment soon considering I last did it about 8 months ago.

I would reccomend at least every 3 months, however I reccomend the Dri wash i use, and its all 1 step so its nice and easy. Also all purchases from this site help support this site. i usually protect my vehicle weekly, as thats all i use on it.

I wax in the Spring once and in the Fall once with quick cleans in between. I use Optimum spray wax - it's been awesome so far!

meguiars all the way buddy!!!! Wash the car with meguiars gold class. Then use the meguiars cleaner wax, then put on some meguiars tech wax 2.0. Best way to do it in my opinion twice a year. Then in between after you wash it, use megiuars spray detailer. Works like magic. Gives the car a deep wet look shine. On top of the twice a year I use megiuars ultimate compound with a foam buffer before the cleaner wax, to help remove swirls, scratches, fade, and it helps to restore color. But thats what I do. Car is amazing, and smooth as glass. And when parked next to another black versa, mines deeper, richer, deeper, wet look, more vibrant. But the tech wax 2.0 is suppossed to play a big part in that. My girlfriend could put her makeup on just by looking into my car it reflects so good, lol!!! Hope this helps!! ;)

Ok, we know you like to brag! j/k

you guys work way to hard, i use the dri wash everyweek, car is super smooth, super shiney, and takes about 20 mins a week. (most people use it like a wax and works almost as good, sometimes it may need a claybar if its been 6 months at times, mostly depends on the person and how often its cleaned)
