    well, back on topic, I think im going to step up my game a bit and wax every other wash (especially as I use cheap stuff), just still not sure which spray wax I should get for the inbetween cleans, or if I should just get some colinite as that seams to be a popular choice

    ok if you got your mind set on a liquid wax and colinite the only logical choice is collinite 845 imo, its not too expensive either

    yeh I saw that, looks like good stuff, could be worth a punt instead of colinite maybe.

    You are probably better doing it right and then keeping it topped up instead of washing it a spray waxing it often,

    i.e
    wash the car
    clay it
    wash it again
    dry it
    polish it with a hand polish SRP or something similar
    wax it
    then give it another coat or 2 of wax

    Once you do that it will be much easier to keep clean and wont require as much maintenance. I try and do that at least once a year and then wash and wax it as required. The caly bar makes a big difference the paint is like glass afterwards.

    Only problem is the amount of time it takes, can almost be a 2 day job and you need the weather or a garage for it.
