    I have a star silver, and I use Poorboys Nattys paste wax, pleased with it. Got some collinite for the winter as it is legendary, supposed to last for months!
    Might be worth considering preping first ( wash/clay/wash/polish/glaze) , either way make sure it is clean before you wax, and try not to get any on the black trim!
    Good Luck!

    915 has a higher Carnauba wax content, a coconut fragrance and is supposedly easier to use. That's about it. Both are excellent.

    Autoglym EGP is a sealant not a wax so should last but it doesn't seem to as well as other sealants available so I would go for zaino Z2 if you wanted a sealant but it isn't an easy on system but is very durable and will last miles longer than any wax.

    Colly is a great wax both 476 and 915 will give great results on a well prepared car, a wax or sealant only adds a top coat to lock what is underneath in so a car that looks pants with a wax on will still look pants just protected.

    www.cleanyourcar.co.uk for your source of collinite 476 or 915, I have bought from them on many occasions with no problem.
