Bsd protects your lovely wax finish nicely. You probably only need to wax twice a year if you use it after washing. I think the finish is a bit sterile on its own but over something is great and the beading you can't fault I use it mixed with cgv7

It is one of few products on here that really does speak for itself. Anyone could pick a bottle up and see the difference with hardly any effort.
I will still use my nice sealants /waxes but there will always be a place for BSD.

This video of mine was uploaded two months ago, and since then I did not apply any more coats of BSD. It had 3 washes during the last 2 months and believe me it still rocks!

I am considering to apply Gtechniq CSL or Nanolex Si3d after a yearly good polish and what not, but I am still a bit ichy towards "nano" world. I tend to keep things easy. Maybe due to being lazy in some regard.

If you are the guy like me, you do not "need" to apply anything. But you may enjoy even putting a layer of wax anyways.

Sonax BSD... Do I really need to wax?

Great vid, the water behaviour is EXACTLY how my car looked I did enjoy applying wax's and sealants from time to time but it's got me thinking if I'm wasting my time...

Your probably wasting your time if great water behaviour is your thing. For little cost BSD can't be beat. Come the summer though, just remember that BSD doesn't look near as glossy as some other QD's out there.

TBH I found it didn't detract any gloss from when it was machine polished. If anything after the second coat it really did look stunning.

I'm happy to loose a tidy bit of gloss if it protects the finish underneath better and makes keeping it clean easier. I've owned 3 white cars now and they're a bugger!

First time Sonax user today. WHAT AN AWESOME product...and what a joy to apply !

I can well see why people wont even consider traditional waxing any longer. Is like cheating to apply, so if it has any sort of longevity its an even bigger winner..........

I always get smearing after using BSD. I have a dark car and its always there after using it. I now use it after free rinsing to dry the car and then go over the car with Mitchell & King QD to add smoothness and get rid of the smears. This way I get the smoothness of M&K QD and the beading effect (somewhat) of BSD.
