I don't want to reiterate what others have said, other than I support GOSH 100%. The main issue seems to be ill-informed members of the public standing on some kind of assumed moral high ground...

Not a wax but Prima's Hydro Max is an awesome product. It's a shame they're only really known for Amigo as the Hydro range, Nero and Infinity are all excellent products.

Mine's been fine on the Focus, although I must say I've never opened the flap and blasted it with water. I'd be more inclined to just use a detailing brush and wipe with a damp cloth.
