    Default waxing help

    have been using the meguiars 3 step- with great results- however- have ran out of the stage 3 carnauba wax

    Wondering whether to change to the NXT Tech wax ( which also has cleaners in it ) or the Gold Class liquid wax ( which has polishes in it ) rather than get another bottle of carnauba

    I'm guessing the GC is the one- any opinions?

    Collinite for me too - 476s is what I use after Megs polish and #21. Not sure what the 915 is that Fellie refers to.

    915 is 476's big brother. I've used the 476 and am well impressed. (Thanks for the instructions on its use BTW Duncan). Both are on sale with Elite car care for the same price so I guess its a case of deciding what ya after:

    Schpeel on 915 (Marque D'Elegance):

    Marque D'Elegance is a special formula reflecting the dedication to quality that has always been central to Collinite's product philosophy. For the BEST in wax endurance, Marque D'Elegance is the product to have. Car enthusiasts demand a wax that is proven to protect in the most demanding environments - rain or shine, on track or on the street. They have discovered that Collinite Marque D'Elegance gives their valuable automotive investments a blinding, lasting shine because it is formulated from the highest-ever concentration of pure Carnauba waxes. And no abrasives means all Collinite waxes are absolutely clear coat safe. It doesn't get any better!

    Contains 24% more carnauba wax than Collinite Super Doublecoat Auto Wax No. 476s
    Superb lasting protection
    Non-abrasive and clear coat safe.
    Easy to apply.
    12oz tin


    And the Schpeel on 476:


    Super Double Coat Wax is one of the finest paste type auto waxes available. Easy to apply and absolutely DETERGENT PROOF. Collinite Super Doublecoat is guaranteed to outlast and outshine any other competitive auto wax, polish or protective coating under any conceivable condition. That's why it's called the PERMANENT AUTO WAX. No hard rubbing or buffing is required and no special applicator. Collinite Super Doublecoat gives a gleaming lustre that will last a full year, even under adverse conditions. It is suitable for all finishes and clear coat safe, and can also be used on fine furniture, wood paneling, fibreglass and metal.

    100% detergent proof
    Will protect your paintwork for a full year
    Easy to use - no hard rubbing/buffing/special applicators
    Suitable for all finishes, including clear coat
    Also great for wood, fibreglass & metal!
    512ml / 18 oz tin

    *lol* You are going to get a 1000 different answers here, down to personal preferance again, I use victoria concourse wax, applied with your hands, it gives a nice wet look to the car and a very deep shine ..

    Default waxing

    I've ordered some of the Collonite 476, on the basis that I can wax the car in October, and not have to do it again until the following easter

    The Meg's is great but don't think it lasts more than aboot 8 weeks without having to re-apply

    Regards

    Mike

    Do not buy NXT Wax; I used this on my metalic black vectra and it gave the car a dull cloudy finish.

    So i then had to re-do the whole car with turtle wax to get the shine back.

    For me it has to be Colinite 915/476 or Victoria concours wax, they last the longest in my opinion, and give your car a good shine.
