I've just received some samples of a couple of Meguiars waxes.

Megs Gold Class and Megs NXT Tech Wax.

Has anyone ever tried any of these before with good results?

I'm looking for a wet look on my silver TT.

I used to use Zymol Cleaner Wax on my Lotus but I thought it was time for a change. But there are so many on the market with such a price range???

Regards,

Martin :?

Hi Andy (sorry, is that correct?)

Absolutely...Prep!! Although I have never clayed before??
Sounds a bit scary first time...LOL!

Would Swisvax Saphire give me the "wet look" I am after.

Is it a paste or liquid.

Where can I get this from?

and finally, how much please?

lol...thank you.

Regards,

Martin :p

For silver cars you are better using a sealant than a wax to get a good wet looking finish, Megs #21 would do a good job. Problem is if you're finishing your car by hand then you're never going to get the best out of the top performing products other than waxes.

Hmmm...? Thanks Ade.

Yet another thrown in...lol!

To be, I really like hand polishing, it's kind of theraputic.

So I guess I might not get the machine finish I want...So it may indeed be waxes for now :p

Sorry gadgetboy38, I didn't mean to hijack your thread :?

Thats a really inconsistent set of products there. The collinite is a Wax not a polish. Polish is abrasive. Cleaners/Cleansers/CleanerWaxes are not very abrasive but have cleaning fluids in, Waxes are the top coat only.

Trouble with Autoexpress is they look at the VFM factor with products so although a product could be mediocre it gets a better score causes its £2-3 less to buy. Cocks the test up imho. They should just say here are products in a price range and this the best.

Poorboys products can get you a good wet look btw.
