    I agree with the Maguairs - Surprised it did not come first ! I have used there 3 stage stuff (Wash - 1, Polish -2 , Wax 3) for a few years now on all me Vaux Vectra - and yesterday used it on me Signum - and it looks terrific. Hope is lasts a while in this weather - Yep agree with Maguairs at No2.

    Oh dear. That test is severly flawed. Colly 476 is a wax and AG SRP is a Polish (with cleaners and fillers). Two completely different products.

    SRP needs a topcoat of sealent and Wax or both.

    Agree with the overall winner though but stating that 476 leaves better beading than SRP is like saying that a drying towel soaks up more water than a wet octupus with a bladder problem.

    at the thought of drying off with an octopus....

    You'd imagine someone as established as AutoExpress would get something that simple right...

    Maybe next they'll do a comparison of blue paints and discover that Star Silver isn't quite as good as the Ultra Blue...

    The Megs cleaner Wax is also both and doesnt last long. So its not a great polish, and its not a great wax but does a bit of both, so really its pap and shouldn't be on the list.
