For all round performance, looks and price, Dodo SNH. For looks alone, Vic's Concours. I've not used anywhere near as many waxes as many on here but I always seem to go back to these two.

I've tried quite a few and have just gone back to FK425! For me, it has the best combination of ease of use, finish and price. Sometimes the grass isn't always greener!
