I bought a used minivan that was severely scratched up, like the previous owner drove it through a patch a thorn bushes. Although the minivan is dark green, not black, I figured that filling the scratches on a dark surface with black residue would be less noticeable than the white residue you get from regular polish. I was right.

I started with the black crayon lipstick thing, working it up and down perpendicular to each scratch to fill the scratch with the black stuff. This not only filled the scratch, but got the black stuff all over the paint surrounding the scratch. Then I used the liquid polish, rubbing up and down again, to polish off the excess residue so the only black stuff remaining was the stuff filling the scratch, and the paint around it was clean and shiny.

The picture shows it before-and-after. The scratched-up door on the left is the way the whole van looked after the car dealer had it detailed. I used this Color Magic on the door on the right. It was originally even worse than the one on the left, and now you can hardly see the scratches without looking closely.

My only gripe about this product is the packaging. It comes in a tall skinny bottle that's easy to tip over. And the cap doesn't have a flip-top to dispense the liquid a little at a time, so you have to take the cap off and leave the neck wide open when you're using it. It's as if the manufacturer wants it to knock over as easily as possible, and have the whole thing pour out on the ground as quick as possible, so you have to go buy more right away.

But the product itself works great.

Lets start with the best thing about this product. With it being black, you don't have the buildup of off color in hard to reach areas. (I usually use the blue stuff & cracks between doors, etc, are relentless).

While it does seem to protect, I didn't get that feeling of a very strong barrier. Go ahead & throw the crayon away, only thing I got out of it was dull black splotches that I can't get to shine for nothing, so I reverted back to black fingernail polish.

      Comments about Turtlewax Color Magic Black Car Polish (16 oz.):

      I purchased both this product and Meguiar's black wax as a test. While the black wax worked, this stuff was a mess. The included crayon is junk and leaves a smear of flat black goo. The bottle is all black, so it's hard to tell how much product is coming out of the slender bottle neck. The cap is black, so you can't tell if there is product smeared on the cap. The product is extremely watery and hard to control. It sticks to everything but the car. My hands, buff pads, towels and floor were black. The spot I tried to darken stayed grey. You still have to wax afterward, and any good cleaner wax will just remove this stuff.
      My advice: I you are looking to try this, don't. If you purchased it but didn't open it, return it. If you already opened it, toss it in the garbage.

                  Did excellent job covering up a long scratch on side of medium to dark blue Infiniti G35.

                  The lack of white residue from this dark polish, that seems to appear the next day in every crevasse, is a big plus for dark colored paint since it saves you cleanup time.

                    I bought Dr. ColorChip 3 years ago for another car I had. It worked great if you have 60+ bucks to spare. Don't get me wrong I would've ordered Dr. again but a friend told me about a Turtle Wax product. I thought, why not, Turtle Wax has been around longer than most. You do the homework! This product worked fantastic on my blue Volvo S80. I had some road rash on the hood and applied the product. I was impressed. Less time, incredible results and easy to use. Check for different colors!

                    Works great on black cars, no white waxy build up in crevices. Chip stick actually worked and helped to cover some chips and scratches. I would recommend pouring some product off into an empty water bottle and drilling a hole in the cap to squirt out. Product is messy and it ends up all over the place. Removes easily and has a pleasant smell. Cheaper than glazing compound and doesn't leave white residue. Just remember it is polish and not wax.

                            I have used this on various black vehicles and I gotta say it always leaves them looking amazing. I have only tried one other polish for my black car but it wasn't nearly as good as this one. I am happy with the easiness of use and effectiveness of this product. Awesome polish for black vehicles.

                                    Yes, the Turtlewax Color Magic Black Car Polish (16 oz.) is coated with a "gel" coat which reinforces the fibreglass material. This resin is similar to paint and is susceptible to oxidation, scratches, stains, and normal environmental etching.

                                    You may be able to, but it may leave your car darker while the wax is on the vehicle.

                                    According to Turtle Wax, this is safe for both clear coat and conventional finishes.
