I use Meguiars gold wash. After I am done washing to prevent water spots I take my Stihl leaf blower and blow off most of the water off then follow up drying with microfiber towels and I go through about 4 big microfiber towels on my truck before it's dry. That's how I prevent water spots and I know it sounds like a lot of work but 45 minutes and I am done.

wall mart has a wax just for black color. made by mothers ? do't know much about it. spots are often caused by hard water.

I use optimum car wash....by far the best I have ever used. You can get it on amazon or eBay, and other places. Check it out

I'm a big fan of the turtle Wax Ice line. I like the soap, wax, spray detailer, and interior detailer.

I use Turtle Ice car wash on my black truck and use micro fiber towels to dry it off.

I also use the Turtle Ice clay kit with the clay bar, liquid clay cleaner and liquid polish, also use Ice spray wax.

The liquid clay is good in getting off the left over sediments from our crappy water, seems to work better than the clay bar for me. We have extremely hard water and ruins everything
