Talking NHB FN2 "Swissvaxed"

Hello,
I gave my pride and joy a bit of a clean today not that you can tell now, thanks rain

I bought this wax;

http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/swissv.../prod_230.html

Swissvax Onyx, you rub a small amount your plams to warm it up and apply by hand. It leaves no white residue and is very easy to buff with a microfibre.

Once buffed leave car in direct sunlight for 3hrs and then buff again. It works like magic on NHB makes the colour more deeper and richer, the shine is amazing and water just beads and runs off the surface. The best wax i've ever used
Check out the bonnet...

So water runs right off. How about more dirty stuff ? Does that stick less and wash away with the next rain or quick rinse ?

It does make cleaning easier, but if you want a non stick coating then Swissvax Shield is the one to go for. Its expensive tho

Its been raining all day 2day, I was amazed at how slick the wax made the paint surface. The rain was beaded all over the surface and was running off the car. Driving at 40mph the rain blew off. Swissvax is the best (IMO)

Got to say your car looks fantastic so that wax must be good stuff. I will try some, how many application will one pot of wax do? Also I have the SupaGard, will it be OK to use with SupaGard products?

I think I remember reading one pot lasts 25 applications. They reccomend you wax every 3-6months therefore in theory 6 years

Ill probs wax once a month so 2 years

Im not sure if its ok with SupaGard, Swissvax reccomend you use their cleaner fluid to remove all wax and polish from the paint. It may take off the SupaGard finish tho

Doesn't sound like its worthwhike if you have SupaGuard if the cleaner removes all wax and polish. I was lucky enough to get a good deal on my SupaGuard but will just use Megs on it when I feel its needs a wax. Plus the SupaGuard should cause the water to bead anyways.

Didn't think it would be ok with SupaGuard etc...
Which megs do you use highly recommend tech wax, leaves the paint with a rich colour and mask minor swirls.

Yeah tech wax is good

I havn't waxed the CTR yet since it had SupaGuard and cos of exams. But I have washed it quite a few times so will be getting something for when the weather is a bit better again, prob end up getting tech wax tbh and see how that comes out on the Milano. (looked great on my old car which was blue)

Smile NXT Wax

If you pop into Halfords got 3 for 2 on offer - and they do the Meguires Collerbag set - NXT Wash, NXT Wax and Glass Cleaner for bout 35 - haven't used it yet as waiting for car to arrrive.
From Reading Forums NXT seems bout the best "normal" wax for NHB and Bronze cars.
