    I got a brand new never opened tin of autoglym's hd wax if your interested. Comes with the applicator as well. £20 including postage if you are interested...but will be honest with you...i went for collinite instead hence the hd wax sitting there collecting dust!

    two chose out of those two id go for the colli

    however, as someone else said Dodo juice supernatural is very good

    but as mark said, you could have the best wax money could buy, but if the car is not cleaned/polished/clayed properly it wont matter

    I'd chose the colli's over the autoglym although my bro recently bought some farecla stuff from halfords and the results looked great (although no idea over longevity).

    I keep reading about zaino stuff but no idea if it's any good.

    I have Poorboys Natty's Paste Wax and i think it is very good, easy to apply and despite what i read online sometimes i find it lasts very well.

    But out of the two you mention collinite seems to be a big favourite among people who use it. Never tried it myself though so cant comment, i think when i need to buy wax again i'll give it a go though.

    Paste wax is better though, liquid wax is easier to apply and buff off but doesnt last as long. It has its place though, for example in the summer months where you are washing your car more often and a quick top up of wax can be done quite quickly.

    The Supernatural went on about 2 months ago and is still beadling quite well and the water is still running off the paint yet. Admittedly it's the prep that helps a LOOONG way to a decent finish. I clayed mine down with a Gloss it bar but it didn't really take that much dirt off so either it was crap or the paint was pretty clean to start with. After that it got gone over with Dodo Lime Prime and then 2 coats of the Supernatural.

    I would have machined it but didn't really have the time to be honest. I got pretty good results from that.

    Poorboys natty blue for dark colours is very good, excellent value aswell! I'm using that at the moment on my sapphire black E46!

    The autoglym stuff is out of it's depth in it's current price range, collinite is far superiour Although for that money I'd go for chemical guys pete's 53 wax..

    For a black car aswell I'd recommend using chemical guys' blacklight before waxing, brilliant product.. really worth the money if you want true sparkle and depth of shine!

    Sapphire black is an amazing colour when done properly!!

    I have been using Collinite 915 for quite some time and have no reason to consider changing
