MK6 Tornado red gtd.

I'm just a little ocd about my car so try to keep it clean and gleaming. Just finishing of my Autoglyn HD wax lasted bloody ages.

 

Has anyone got any recommendations for next purchase looking at a few including.

 

P21s. But read no lasting power but read give a brilliant deep shine and beeding.

Chemical Guys Butter Wet Wax (not hard though)

Auto Finesse Essence Carnauba car wax

Nattys Red paste wax.

 

Any recommendations appreciated for both hand and machine polishing as may get a da next few weeks.

 

Cheers All.

I've tried all sorts of stuff over the years, believing the hype, and always come back to good old fashioned Autoglym Super Resin!

 

I think a lot of the hype for waxes is a bit like the "Emperors new clothes" and seeing how far marketing departments think they can mug people off for a tin or bottle.

This is not a wax

It contains wax according to the faq. https://www.autoglym...er-resin-polish

I used several autoglym products and they were all better than my expectations. I doubt you will find better products, maybe cheaper ones...

autoglym are like a industry standard. they are nothing compared to some of the detailing products out there. 

 

It does contain wax however its a polish. not a dedicated wax. i think the original poster was looking for a dedicated wax

You just need to go to store and buy one and let us know how it works then :) It is difficult to give advice when many of us did not try all the products on the shelf. I just take the car to carwash for example and live with the polish provided.

 

BTW you asked about a wax but then asked about machine polishing. I am guessing you want to wax, not polish. At least I am not a fan of polishing. I would rather live with the imperfection :)

if your only claying and waxing maybe introduce another step to get more shine and durability?

I have spent literally hundreds of pounds on detailing products (started by attempting to keep a black Jag looking good ) and the best value, longest lasting sealant/wax I`ve found recently is Turtle Wax Hybrid sealant.

Do not be deterred by the cheap price, it is really exceptional.

Bilt Hamber do a cracking wax and it lasts for well over 6 months. Superb though the winter. :-)

 

p.s. Their Surfex HD is superb too as an APC/Degreaser. I've just bought 25L of the stuff. It's so versatile.
