Have read the details on this wax which sound exceptional once a year application!
Just wondered if anyone here has tried it? Seems a very good price as well! £18.50!

I haven't but would be interested to know how good it is if you get some. Currently using Autoglym HD wax which seems good.

I have used it on Jack! I love it! I tend to use it twice a year, but as you can see from previous pics, the shine was great and I have used hardly any of the tin as you only need a really thin layer! Very Happy

Miss this thread Rolling Eyes

Its good stuff for the price but there are better alternatives out there for a tiny bit more i.e. R222

As said good stuff apply thin layers as Vik said or it is a B*****D to get off Mad

Best to be used as an undercoat wax if you get what i mean first layer then use another wax Wink on top, as with all waxes prep is the key and im sure Vik will agree with me on that (DoDo Lime Prime thumbs up ) no good just claying and then applying wax you need to polish etc etc, paint work cleanser is a MUST !! I.e R222 Gloss Enhancing Paintwork Cleanser http://www.theultimatefinish.co.uk/r222/gloss-enhancing-paintwork-cleanser.aspx?src=google-base or Zymol HD-Cleanse http://www.vertar.com/car-care-exterior/surface-preparation/zymol-hd-cleanse/ or you are just coating wax over dirt and it will spoil your finish.

I.e. Rob you said that yellow carnauba wax left a yellow tinge - see the Guinea Pig thread and i have explained why you have a yellow tinge - not down to yellow wax Wink
