Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

Anyone used the above polish on their car? I'm only really talking about the chip stick, as if it's any good it'll help cover up the stone chips on my motor. Opinions please...

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

The stuff is good for our GT although the Chip Stick is a novelty item at best!

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

Not bothered about the polish really, so I guess a waste of £8.99...

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

On the other hand :

Been a happy user of the BLACK ,for car & bike , generally use it as a pre-wax on every other waxing..
Also now use the DARK RED on the "Pearlescent Bordeaux" V6 on the same basis , and it does a very good job !

(Normally £6 from the bloke down the market , btw)

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

Aye! I've used it on Tarquini on and off for years and it's done a good job. It doesn't leave a *very* deep shine but it's not bad and covers a lot of swirl marks (handy when the beast has travelled to Jupiter and back).

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

It's a good red, light abrasive with polish and colour dye, that's alright, for our motor, on occasions. Well I think it is anyway?

Top Tip - the silver version is good for your alloys

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

I've used the black one, its ok but not overly impressed and havn't had to use the chipstick yet. Next time I'll try something else, any recomendations?

As I implied earlier , its pretty useless on its own , but as a first polish , prior to a decent wax (using "Fol's" carnuaba at the moment) it does a fine job

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

I have used the black version. I thought it was ok, if not exceptional.

If you consider it a normal polish then its pretty good, but it makes your hands a nice black colour though if you don't wear gloves.

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

Silicone Polish? you must be kidding

Anyway, I've tried the color stuff once years ago... will never touch one again... not good as a wax, not good as a stonechip treatment.

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

My 147 is black and I have used it on the bumpers - it is quite good to temporarily cover light scuffs, but the chip stick is about as useful as a wean's crayon.

I'd spend my last penny on it.

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

Yes i used it the other day,its the only polish ive used so i cant really say if its better than anything else.it did a fairly nice shine but i wasn't dazzled.

The chipstick was useless though.

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

i find the colour wax does give a good shine on blue ,it does'nt fill the chips though and the chip sticks dont work that well either ,looked like a 2yr old drew on the car with a crayon !

Re: Turtlewax Colour Magic Polish

Kept our Bella looking nice and redish, with occasional use.: The badger sorted the stone chips out, as the pictures of the front end woud verify if I could show you a picture!

Funny Innit, not many tasks on a motor have beaten me, but I can't post pictures up on AO, daft I calls it, but I keep trying so you never know one day.

Been at it for over two years now, and even though I'm now a bona fide member, that didn't help much either!
