    Hmmm. I would like to get some Collinite 915 but already have some AG HD wax, some Victoria Concours and some Turtle Wax hard wax, so it is difficult to justify at the moment. Maybe in the new year. Paul

    The 915 not as good as the 476 it doesn't last as long the 476 ya just press a pad on it and it can do nearly half a car and very easy to remove no dust. Had turtle wax found it pants lol

    I only use the Turtle Wax on my headlamps. Seems to protect them well. It also seems to come up nicely on alloy wheels. Paul
