    Ive been using AutoGlym High Definition Wax, but nearly run out now! I don't know what to replace it with, should I buy another or is there another better wax in the same price range?

    Thanks! :thumbsup:

    I really like Swissvax Shield!
    It's a more natural wax than AG HD, and it also contains Teflon.

    Nice warm glow, and good durability!

    Its made for black cars, provides EXCELLENT protection and actually gives the car excellent shine as well.

    Bit far out of his price range don't you think? :laugh:

    I have some Dodo Juice Blue Velvet and some Autoglym HD which I both like.

    The nattys stuff is good for the price.

    Oh snap! I'm not to familiar with the UK prices.

    In Norway, Shield is £90, and AG HD is £75
    I can see that in UK Shield is £105 and AG HD is £35 lol!

    My bad.

    If it's for the white A3 in your profile pic, I wouldn't recommend a wax.

    Instead, go with a sealant - much sharper finish, more 'white' white.

    Without a doubt, Werkstat Acrylic kit (which is on offer!): Winter Preparation Special Offers | Werkstat Acrylic Kit

    It is, simply, the business on white.

    (If it's for another car, not the white one, let me know and I can recommend)

    im using colly 915 at the moment, i really like it as it gives good protection and durability i think and for £18 you cant beat it.

    this is for jim and john (PB) which wax would you recommend for my nogaro blue S4?

    Have you a budget in mind?

    Ideally, I'd recommend Raceglaze Black Label: Raceglaze Signature Series Black Label | Raceglaze Car Care & Detailing Products as it will give an absolutely awesome finish on Nogaro Blue with superb durability.

    But if that's over budget, then Raceglaze 55 is my next thought: Raceglaze Signature Series '55' | Raceglaze Car Care & Detailing Products it'll still give a deep, rich, glossy finish with great durability.

    With either of them, I'd recommned using Werkstat Carnauba Prime first to cleanse the paint and add a basecoat of sealant. It provides an excellent base to top with wax. Werkstat Prime Carnauba | Werkstat Car Care & Detailing Products

    Re: Collinite 915: it is very durable and gives good protection but its fair to say its aesthetics leave a fair bit to be desired - but it is only £25.95 for a big tin.

    55 is absolutely superb, it's actually really good value - the results it gives are way above its price point.

    As for Black Label, it's incredible for the money: its finish is comparable with Zymol Vintage.....
