    DoDo fran, for the price of £45 id get DoDo mate, if you have the money go for Supernatural i know its £99 but its refillable then for like £65 and it will last your car over 3 years so works out best in the long run for a top product

    exactly fran, a wise man once told me that "you apply a wax not work it in" so as long as the panel is covered then no need to use more product. i have a sample pot of DoDo hard candy and i done my whole car and no lie i still have enough to do it atleast 3-4 times now its that good. with a 250ml pot for £32.95 is damn good value for money in my eyes when using it on customers cars, my pots(purple haze + blue velvet) ive had for around 1 year and as they are for my car only they will last me well over 5-6 years. i will only buy DoDo as the value beats most things

    I've had the panel pots before and you should easily be able to get 7 applications of the wax, you dont need to use alot. Makes it even better value for money.

    Why not think about Collinite 476s, thats really durable, or Meguiars Mirror Glaze 16, both seem good waxes! Ive had AG HD before, and it seemed a good wax, but Im fairly confident that for almost £40, some of the Swissvax things are better for that bit more! My cars white though, so Im going to be looking at some good, durable sealants now, and maybe bang a wax on for winter.

    colly is brilliant mate, one of the most durable waxes out there, i use colly 915 for winter as its still on now after Oct and still beads off water.

    dont get sucked into swissvax mate!!! they are quality products but your getting ripped off by marketing big time

    you will, i have used a sample pot on 2 cars and still have half left in the pot.

    its how you apply the wax which determines how far it will go

    exaclty mate i dont use alot of wax on my car its better to put on loads of small amounts than one big amount it builds up the layers of wax so it'll last longer that way

    what were the tests mate??

    im not saying AG HD isnt any good as it is but im sticking with DoDo as its cheaper and lasts me a very long time when i do customers cars, i always wax the car every 3 months anyway and my waxes always protect mine and my customers cars for that period of time.

    at the end of the day fran try what you want and then you can have your own experience on what you think is the best for you.

    Hey fran ive got the full dodo range mate and they are all awesome really, my advice to you is if you like orange crush, try get your hands on some ltd edt skull candy or rubbish boys juiced edition - RB Juiced will make your car glow and bead for months!

    AutoGlym are way way way behind the times. They haven't long had that wax and through lack of making money as they once used to they were forced to jump on the "detailing" band wagon, oh and now they even have a clay bar LOL.

    The AG HD wax is a mediocre product at best, one which I'd use on a car if i wanted an ok finish.

    Disagree heavily with the comments made about Swissvax, Swissvax has been at this game of making waxes far longer than most of it's competitors since the early 1930's, there's a reason why the BOS, Divine and Crystal rock (to name a few) are rated very highly by professional detailer's, because they are very good. There are always pro's and con's to each manufacturer and product line, some natural based waxes rich in oils, some more chemical based compounds, neither of which really outweighs the other, it all depends on what you are looking for r personal preference, which you'd only realise by using a wide range of products.

    I recently spent a hefty whack (3 figure sum) on G-Techniq's product line, buying almost each product. Used it on a 2 year old Focus over this weekend. Totally different approach to what I would normally take and all I can say is outstanding work from the guys over at G-Techniq on such a great product line. Very very easy to get flawless results from one product over one machining stage (did help as car was new). C1 is a very very good product one which will be going on my own car at some stage. I wouldn't be putting BOS on a focus as I would see it as wasteful and over the top, but that's just my opinion, doesn't mean i'm right.

    If you have a (performance car/supercar/ - Porsche, Aston, R8, RS4/3/5/6, Bentley (to name a mear few)........etc etc then to my mind there is something Magical about detailing those cars and applying wax by hand (no applicator pad), but as i'm not detailing supercars all of the time, I want an easy approach, with great products which are nice and simple to apply, which last a long time and still look good in 12 months. Which is why I've bought G-Techniq, thought i'd see what all the hype was about. Spending the amount for Swissvax BOS (or one of the higher valued waxes) isn't for everybody, but it's not just about the value of the waxes or what the product does necessarily, maybe more for those with a nostalgic approach to what you are buying and the satisfaction and good feeling it gives you when you've applied BOS to a nice car.

    Each to their own, live and learn from the experienced professional detailer's on the forum, I'm not a professional, so don't ask me.

    Jimmy, polished bliss etc are the ones to ask, i'm sure they'll be able to add something about waxes here, and maybe even correct me if I'm wrong.

    For me detailing stems from a love and passion for performance cars, when they look their best they really do inspire.

    thanks for the input mr.g appriciate your words and i can say im happy with dodo juice for the time being as money is a bit tight at the mo but in the near future i shall be investing in a some more expensive wax as i love my car when its just been waxed the red is still so deep its unbelevable for a 90k mile car and it always cleans up a treat which i love about audi's , pictures dont do it justice it looks ok in pictures but if you see it on a sunny day in person its a real powerfull red so i think its worth spending a bit extra for that flawless finish i get
    regards
    fran
