Alrighty then....
I just got the Meguiars Cleaner WAX(clear coat safe) AND i got Meguiars Gold Class Clear Coat PASTE Car Wax.
They're both paste...

Could i use one and coat the first one with the second?? Would it give it more of a clean or shine?? Does it even matter??

I studied my stuff on the under hood of an STi, i never had experiance with cleaning, only soap wash and waxing it...

Would you guys give me some pro info on cleaning my car??

This is your bible to washing cars. It will teach you a great deal about how paint works and how to make it look it's best. Here's a few tips for the wax:

*Stay away from the rubber/plastic parts of your car. Stay away from the door jambs.

*Use the applicator that came with it

*Remove with 100% terry cloth or microfiber towels....don't ever use old crappy towels that your family collects in a closet. Those are bad for your paint

*Do not wax your car if you don't have plenty of time to do it right. I guarantee you will not be satisfied with it if you rush it, especially after seeing pics of some of the guys cars here. :D

Good Luck bro!

Cleaner wax is just what it says. It is supposed to clean the paint. Run your hand along your hood (visibly clean hood not dirty). It should feel smooth. If it doesn't you need a paint cleaner. Cleaner wax does this. It helps remove those little bumps you feel with your hand. They also have just straight paint cleaners too.

The Gold Class is "The Highest Shine Meguires wax ever!"
I use Gold Class. If you plan to do both do the cleaner then the Gold Class. My first wash/wax in the spring I use paint cleaner then Polish, then Cleaner Wax then Gold Class. I think it comes out looking good plus 2 coats of wax for the first application of the spring is a good idea. All the wax from last nice weather day is most likely gone.
