    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!

    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.....
