Exclamation Never used protection !

Brought a car but it has never been detailed. So I polished the rear bumper and waxed it with Bilt Hamber Double Speed. It's a white bmw.

So the part I waxed seems to get dirty than the parts that have not been polished or waxed.
Any other products that would be better for the rest of the car.

I'm not 100% sure about this, but I think the reason the waxed area is more dirty is due to its location. Maybe dirty water that's running down the boot lid and pooling there has caused these dirty waterspots (once its evaporated).

BH DSW gets good praise on here, so I don't think you should change that.

Just a suggestion, hopefully it helps

The back of my 3 gets filthy as that's where all the grimy water ends up.

In this pic, I haven't touched anything, top of the boot lid is spotless, rear bits are manky. Guessing the aerodynamics mean it's not removed at speed same as the rest of the car.

I do get what you lot mean. But everywhere is clean, the rear active spoiler, bottom half of the rear bumper which not been waxed nor near number plate. Which made me question the wax. The polish used was Meguiar's 205 for some light swirls.

I suspect it's because DSW is so hydrophobic. It makes water bead like mad, but if the panel is mucky when it dries it does so in an uneven pattern which draws attention to the dirt on the panel. This is of course worse if we're talking about the back of the car which always gets filthy anyway. But if the rest of the car is unprotected, the dirt will tend to spread evenly across the panel which, under casual inspection, will make it look cleaner than it is.

I know which part of your car will be easier to clean, though!

This is the key - I bet 50% if not more just washes off with the pressure washer, whereas the rest will be stuck on and hard to wash off.

Look at cars on the motorways when they been spreading salt/grit for a while. Cars get dirty in two places (regardless of model). Down the sides and the back end.

I wouldn't read too much into it. Just keep cleaning.
