New wax time, but which one.

I'm in the market for a new wax that delivers the following.



Easy on/off

Gloss

Lovely beading

Great water sheeting.



My 3 preferred are



RG55

WOLFGANG FUZION

ZYMOL GLASUR



My preference is for Glasur although my budget, circa £70 means it'll have to be a used pot.



Durability is not what I'm after as it's going over a coating so which of these 3 should I try?

Forgot to add, it's for an Estoril Blue BMW.

I would go for Wolfgang Fuzion, one of my top 10 waxes but Glasur is also a great wax. Not used RG 55 so can't comment on that.

Not used fusion, but owned glasur and 55 for some time.

Glasur has better water behaviour. 55 isn't bad but like most waxes in that sense.
Both are very easy to apply and remove, but glasur is known to occasionally suffer from gassing so leaves feint holograms after you've finished. I've never had 55 do this.

On darker cars I prefer 55 as it leaves an awesome finish, glasur is still good but not quite as good. Lighter colour's probably go with glasur.

For the price, 55 is hard to beat it's just a shame it comes in cheap packaging but it certainly seals it airthight!

Cheers Dave.

I'd seen some of your previous posts and actually considered Carbon after reading them but the videos I've seen of the Glasur water behaviour are epic!
