Sonax BSD/ WAX

Hi,
I've been using Sonax BSD several times after washing car. Should I now be putting a coat of wax on my white BMW. If so then I need to buy a wax, has anybody put a wax on top of BSD. I fancy BH DSW,
Thanks

Wax first, then as the water behaviour or gloss starts to decline then top it off after a routine wash with BSD.

BH DSW is a pretty good wax, but at a similar cost is sonax polymer net shield or sonax protect and shine hybrid. Both a aerosol based polymer sealants instead of a paste wax but all offer ling term paint protection. The two sonax sealants offer extreme beading only matched by BSD which works well as a top up

I’ve used BH DSW and got good results from it, preferred using it when the weather was cool - so now is a good time

I’ve also used AG HD wax on my previous white motor and that added a great gloss to it...

Recently trie G3 supergloss and was very pleased with it, so easy to apply and gave a fantastic finish

You must remove BSD first either using a cleanser polish or paint cleaner. If your using BSD after each wash or two then you could just carry on using it if you happy with the finish.

Product wise if you fancy a change, try AutoFiness Tripple all in one polsh/wax to remove BSD then dare to ask what wax to use

I have just put 2 coats of SPN 1 day apart and can day such a disappointment, just another product that is just ok and people have jumped on board.

I also used DSW and although more work left me with a better finish

I've done a durability test of DSW against PNS (and Collinite 915) which I have posted videos on here previously. What I found is that DSW and PNS have virtually identical water behaviour and durability, with PNS just sneaking the durability, though not by much at all. DSW is much better value for money as you get loads more applications per tub for virtually the same price.
