That's what makes detailing so interesting.

We all have are favourite products & different points of view.

Will agree to disagree

I agree with this, much has been made of colour specific products and while there is no doubt some companies push them you will find good prep and most good products ( many recommended on here) will give equally good results.
But each to his own.

Thanks for the comments so far.

I have been around a lot of cars and products, but I have to say its hard to keep up with all the latest products.

My previous toy's have mostly been black (and I vouched never to buy another black car) as you can get obsessed with it. It looks stunning, for about 2 hours !

My own thoughts where, I did use Purple Haze, and I thought it did add to looking extra glossy when comparing to some others, hence looking for something for a red car.

I had a small bottle of PA red opal, it is brilliant and you really get what you pay for, stuff is packed with SiO2, TiO2 and carnauba flakes. Great filling and masking properties, too.
Or Vic's Red, if you can get your hands on that, amazing wax for solid red finishes.

polish angel colour specific made a big/noticeable difference to a silver car i have, it wasn't colour charged, all i can guess is the ingredients are formulated to make the best of the colour, i have seen flake and colours muted by generic waxes on the same and other cars i have owned.

Agree guys

Carnauba Arts, Silver Alunite is another great product.

In my opinion, Polish Angel products are worth the extra cost.

There are products specifically for black paint that contains pigments, this was tested on the forensic detailing channel and the pigments were shown to add nothing to the finish. It is all rubbish/placebo.

Polish angel is probably the most expensive brand theres tonnes of decent products for much less. depending on your needs , gloss/slickness/durability/beading.
