Default Which wax?

Hi all, thinking of waxing the golf to give the paintwork a bit of protection over the winter, I don't usually do a lot of detailing or anything like that and the last wax I bought was some simoniz carnuba wax in a gold tin that's like trying to smear a candle around the car..

Just wondered if any of you guys have a good recommendation for something that's not too difficult to apply and will last a while? cheers

Collinite 476 is good for protection matey. Not the best for shine, but i'm not bothered about that over winter and it beads its tits off after a couple of layers. Quick tip though - do a panel at a time and then wipe off after each panel... it can be a bitch to get off otherwise

I use armour all no hard work to put on and take off just like washing your car with a sponge more than anything. It comes with an applicating pad.

Prep paint properly then go with AG EGP and top that with a few coats of FK1000P cheap way to have decent protection over winter.

carnuba wax is for people that like to polish --it is natural palm tree oil wax,so using car wash will strip it all off --but if you want a shine like a hearse or the queens car ,especially if its black-nothing better.
it will not clean any shite off --you must do that with something like t-cut etc and buff up--then wax coat
--but it will show white in seams if you dont, take it all off properly -
its the wax for a show car -just keep building layers and only wash with cold water,always used it when painting black cars where the slightest scratch in the lacquer showed, --fills all the imperfections

Default Which wax

For all those that drive through Winter, what type of Wax do you use on your Dub.

I used to use Mequires 3 Step but have recently bought a Mequires one step Wax.
Is doing it once enough or do you get a better protection in Waxing the car 2 to 3 times?

I wonít use anything from megs costs too much and isnít that good.

I use chemical guys jet seal as a base on a fully clean car, followed by cg5050.
At the min Iím trying the gtechnique ceramic coating on the st with brilliant results.

The more wax you put on doesnít always work out best as a waxed surface will repel the second coat of wax so in reality you could only be waxing the wax. All depends on your cleaning routine and your methods as well as the waxes you use.

Finishkare fk1000p. Same level of protection of collinite 476s but far easier to apply/remove and has better gloss in my opinion.
