Couldn't begin to answer this as there are so many LSPs I like which all have specifics traits I want in certain scenarios.

It's a Sophie's Choice question.

If you have to throw out all bar one, which one?

Downside is that it doesn't hide paint imperfections like some lsps.

BSD is second, but C2 still sits with CS and Exo better.
having only used C2v3 i dont have much to go on however i have recently purchased some Farecla G3 Resin Superwax from halfords on a whim (and so i can apply it with the DA) so will see how that goes.

i also have a tin of BH double wax that i bought by mistake. might give that a go but i reckon it will mean alot of elbow grease.

Clearly the superwax won't be as good as the C2v3 but for something different I really like it. Really nice gloss to it and so easy to use. Doesn't seem to last long though and they recommend 2 coats. I've had it for a few years and break it out every now and then to add a different finish to the cars

It's well worth a go and can't do any harm. Water behaviour isn't the best but it adds a lovely warm wet looking gloss. That's mine and the Mrs old car from last year after a go with it.

I believe with a decent prep lots of products will give plenty of bling. It's mainly about getting the paint really clean before adding anything else.

I did a hand prep ( can't use the machine these days) and Colly 476. I can get a good bling from ONR and BSD. If I want it to pop a bit I use DD acrylic spritz.

For me it would have to be Farecla Super Gloss Paste Wax for its finish and ease of application.
