I use Meguiars White Wax which contains an advanced blend of micro cleaners, SMAT (super micro abrasive technology) abrasives and high-grade carnauba wax fused with high-tech polymers that clean, polish and protect. It made my white SLK so shiny but I'm afraid weekly use could damage the clear coat because it's a cleaner wax.

I would think micro abrasive cleaners will be scratching.
It would just take longer.

Have you tried using your product and then a carnuba/smart wax (no abrasive) to seal it?

From Meguiar:

Re: Is there a rule to using "CLEANER WAX"?
Cleaner Wax is a great all in one that, if used very regularly (like every couple of months) and properly, can help to keep a car looking really nice for many, many years. No, it's not a miracle product that will make a car look like you've spent 18 hours doing a near concours level detail job on it (yeah, yeah, we know.... a true "concours" level detail could take a week or more) but when used regularly it prevents the build up of embedded dirt that can dull the appearance, and it can help reduce the appearance of very fine swirls as they appear.

To use it between a compound and a non cleaner wax is sort of an odd use for it, however. If you're going to "wash, clay, compound, "CLEANER WAX", and wax" then substituting Ultimate Polish for that Cleaner Wax step is a better use of your time. But if you just want to maintain a daily driver to a high level and aren't necessarily looking for near perfection, then "wash, clay, Cleaner Wax" can be a great routine to get into.

I have a lot of waxes, lol. I got Ultimate Quik Wax, Ultimate Paste Wax and White wax. They're all Meguiar's products.

White wax does have abrasive cleaners but it makes my car the most shiny.

If i waxed / polished etc my car once a week so far ive owned it over 6 years so thats over 312 polish / waxes etc

Would i be just rubbing / polishing the Laquer of my paintwork and eventually the microns thick Laquer will slowly start to thin out eventually ?

Now lets start a debate . >:D

@jbanks15 waxes his car a lot though. If he does it I'm sure it's totally okay.
