As the title suggests, your opinions on which Carnauba based wax that doesn't break the bank?
I used to treat the black Signum to a dose of Autoglym SRP followed by EGP and that seemed to do the trick without the need for an additional layer. For several weeks I could give her a quick wash & the dirt almost fell off.
Now I have the grey Insignia. OK, it doesn't show the dirt as much but 2nd week wash with the above regime wasn't exactly "point the hose & job done." More start from scratch & spend a whole afternoon.
So I'm thinking I need an extra layer of wax on top of the AG EGP. Plus I'm nearly (but not quite happy) with the finish at present.
Living in the sticks the only product available "off the shelf" was Auto Glym Aqua Wax at £10. Not overly impressed on first impression. It sprayed EVERYWHERE (but I do have a nice shiny face!!) & I ended up applying the spray to the cloth before the bodywork. Didn’t seem to be much left on the paint to buff off & had difficulty seeing where I’d done!
So I've read around & got completely confuddled. Then I Ebayed to see which decent size packs of Carnauba wax came in at less than £20 or there-abouts.
Hence the thread, and the poll. Which do you have experience with and would recommend or avoid? Lifespan between applications as well as finish is a big factor.
I know there are fab products out there but £25 for a BIG tub/bottle that will last ages is my max budget. Thought & opinions most welcome.
