Since i below to the god forgiven catergory, blessed with a black car, i dont know whether this is a good idea.
This Ganesh is certainly nothing to do with the Lord.
With a black car you have to be doubly careful since scratches show immediately.
Please don't ever wipe off dust with any cloth, chamois or not. Wash it off with copious amounts of water and dry. At the most wipe with a wet cloth, rinse out the cloth, repeat on a new area, then dry.
Wiping with a dry cloth on dust makes the dust particles act like fine abrasives that will take off your gloss.

I alos own a black car , but a regular waxing will play down those swril marks that may appear when we use cloath to dust off.

But with black car a moist cloth is good and then post when a neat pure cotton cloth would work well.

Above all regualr wax and if the car takes too much mud, drity due to wet weather, splash good amount of water so that the dirty loosen's.

Thanks everyone,

Got to check few shops on JC roada , but the shops opp. lifestyle are better.

I got Turtle wax and some tyre sprays.

On JC road found Auto world who is the dealer for com paints, these paints are perfect match to cover up scratches which cannot be done away with normal rubbing products.
