    Its great stuff. I used 476 first about 12 months ago and have now got 915. To be honest its difficult to see the difference as you could be excused for thinking its the same stuff in a different wrapper!. One thing that will strike you is how long it lasts still beading after months.See pic.

    Looks good mate - I think I'm going to change to 476 for mine as everyone raves about it (I've got 1 maybe 2 waxes left from my freebie Megs Gold Class stuff).

    One thing worth mentioning I think guys. To get that really nice wet look it pays to clay the paint to get rid of the old wax and prepare a smooth surface, then apply a glaze, something like Chemical Guys EZ for light colours and Poorboys Black hole for darks. Follow this up with 2 coats of Colly 476 or 915 for a great shine and lasting protection.

    Is 915 the one best suited to dark colours?

    Is Poorboys Black hole any good, i was looking at it before but never bought it.

    Lately ive been using Poorboys Nattys blue paste wax, its pretty good but im really liking the results of Collinite thats been posted on here lately.

    Supid question maybe - when applying 2 coats (2nd after 24hrs) do you give the car a quick shampoo wash to get rid of any crap from the air that has settled??

    Thanks in advance...
    yes, a quick wash to remove any dust ect, then apply seccone coat.
