I treat red as a dark colour, and have always had better results treating it that way.

Here's my take on this...

Light colored cars don't show swirls as easily as dark colored ones, but they do show dirt a lot easier. Products designed for light/dark, be they glaze or AIO's, will typically have more cleaners in the light version and more fillers in the dark.

This allows a deeper cleaning on white, which makes a bigger visual impact than removing swirls, and allows more hiding of the swirls on the darker cars (where you would see them more).

So if you are looking at maximzing the swirl filling ability, then choose Blackhole over White Diamond - FWIW I have both and I'd definitely pick blackhole over white diamond.
