Anyone recommend a good product for keeping Tornado Red from turning pink?

I use Autoglym and with a polish the golf looks good, however after 2 or 3 weeks you can see the pink coming back?

Meguiars any good?

cheers

I was an Autoglym man through and through until I got Mothers Wax off Trevor in Autosystems. I tried it on a small part of the car which is tornado red and f*ck me...I'm converted

Did you see my car at castlewellan?
There was no tornado there atall! just pink!

I tried maguires at the show and since then it has taken longer to go pink!
Although i have resorted to getting a respray!

Maguires is good stuff, has a handy spout on the cap too, good for kids like me

I have used the 3M stuff there is a course (white cap) and fine (red cap).

I used the white cap stuff with the polisher on the very pink parts, bought it up well but it doesn't last long.

The red cap stuff is ideal if you intent on using elbow grease, less chances of rubbing down the under layers :~)
