Silver looks smart. The thing i like about it is, it doesnt show dirt easily. You cant beat the shine on a milano tho! hehehe

915 is easy to buff off, i suspect you are putting too much on. Thought about trying BH autobalm? Makes it look wetter and more durable, but its a pain in the a**e to buff off!!

Mr JP, bet you spent a fair load on your products!! lol

Most waxes are hard to buff off if you leave them on too long.
Do a panel at a time, then buff and move onto the next.
You will find that the second coat is easier to buff and can be left on a little longer.
BTW..if you want to add another coat immediately, then wet the car lightly with a spray of water and dry off. This will harden the wax and make it ready for the next coat

D'ya know it hasn't yet rained but I noticed morning due sitting on the roof but because of the wax it all ran off while driving.

:)

I'm still debating whether it's worth changing to the new CW one or just treat mine to splitters, new sports exhaust and ecu???
