Why is the paint Job on my wifes 03 Beatle so much better than on my, 03 TLS Acura? I use the same wax, the same Detailing mist, but the shine and the ability to keep water spots off amazzes Me! It must be the clear coat that is used. Let me know what you think.

Thanks!

Not sure what it is. When i bought my Jetta Used back in the spring, the paint looked a little dull and with black you see everything. After a couple coats of wax, it's back to a nice shiney mirror -some of the nicks and scratches from those damn stones.

Do you mean there's a lot less scratches and knicks, or do you mean they did a better job painting it in the first place? I find that VWs tend to have nice paint jobs...

I've noticed on my car that there are little lines on it that you can see when the sun is hitting it right that look like they might be from brushing snow off the car...I had a white car before this so I never noticed this kind of thing. Will these little lines go away with a real wax and buff?
