    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 000

    I use these on mine Collinite 915, Victoria Concours Wax, P21S Chemical Guys 50/50 and DoDo Banana armour. They all look good and seem to bring out the shine. But I think for the summer the Victoria Concours wax is probably my favorite, and for the winter months The Collinite 915, as it is the most durable.
    Thing is a Polish like the one you are using (which is a good product) will only remove swirl marks, you need a wax like those above as wax puts the protection on the paint, where as a polish will not.

    As a polish by hand. Can't be beaten. Abrasives, filllers and cleaners all in one. For the wax what Ed. said.

    It's a Sealent though isn't it? (As opposed to a polish) Read some good reports on it on Autopia.

    Wasn't disagreeing BTW. Wayne's post appeared as I was typing.
