    my first impression is to say no , there are plenty of the new breed of nanopolish/sealer/wax,s out there which have been tried and tested and proved to work .
    All this product is , is a chemical sealent If you want the tried and tested get yourself some poorboys blackhole or chemical guys blacklight , for a one touch sealent try optimum opti-seal or zaino Z2,3 or 5 or to candy coat it Z8
    These are just samples of the proven products that retail for a similar price to your enquiry and some are cheaper .

    The seller says it's a polish ..... no it's a wax thats not a wax
    What on earth ?
    Also they sell loads to the trade but kept some back for Ebay..!

    Why not sell it all to the trade if you can and not have the Ebay hassels ?

    It's on Ebay because you can't sell it to the trade because they've told you it's shi7e !!!

    Polish does the shine .....Wax and sealants do the protection !



    Hope i read the ad correctly .


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Zaino wont dissapoint(sp?), although if giving it the full dress up it can be time consuming and it requires a hot day, but when your finished it's awesome Z8 alone as a final layer is great

    no - for your colour car just get:

    poorboys black hole - for the shine
    megs #16 - for the protection.

    nice and cheap - go to detailing world, you'll get a discount code.

    For scratch removal dan there are quite a few good choices these days I have just used the Zaino Fusion dual action paint cleaner/swirl remover, by hand and even by hand it has done a very good job .
    Another option is the optimum polishing compound or dodo lime prime .
