    Default Anyone tried Colinite 476/845 & 915 waxes?

    I have tried the 845, and I like it, it certainly lasts longer than the Nattys I usually used, but have seen adverts for the 476, which claim it lasts for a whole year?, then there is the 915 which a lot of people rave about, and the blurb states it has more carnuba wax than the 476? does that mean it lasts longer than a year?
    So anyone tried all three? anyone with a silver car?

    right - I can answer this....lol

    with a silver car you need to use poorboys whitediamond as your polish and then poorboys EX-P over the top.

    476 does last well but no way does it last a year imo.. just a couple of months.

    if you're truly into polishing and waxing - you would do it again before then anyway.

    the only thing I've found - is that 476s can be a ****** to get off if left too long.

    a good alternative is http://www.seriousperformance.co.uk/...oView_402.html - it gives the same look but is much easier to get off.

    I use 476 for my alloys - it works a treat.

    hope that helps.

    OK, mine's black & not silver but I've just given it a final coat of 915 before winter. I rate it highly, easy on/off, great shine/depth (QD after every wash helps too) & the beading is fantastic. It's supposed to last around six months, so I'll tell you if it does next year.

    PS FK1000 is next on the "to try" list when the missus isn't looking, along with some Blackhole.

    Try Victoria concours Wax on a Silver car. I in my opinion is one of the best wax,s. But I do think The 915 is the best for winter protection. Though I have been trying FP100p through out the summer and I am very impressed with it,s durability. I am going to continue to put this on my motor over the winter, and I will be putting Colinite 915 on the wifes(it has victoria concours wax on at the moment, it still beads very well) For the winter and it will be ineresting to see the which in my opinion stands up best over the winter............

    have too agree there rich as i find 915 very hard too remove,it does leave a cracking shine but it does take effort,im thinking of trying AG high definition wax too see what its like,should be good at 40 quid a pot lol
