Anyone know if CSL is longer lasting than C1/C5 on wheels?

Hi,
Anyone have any experience of which is the longer lasting of Gtechniq's CSL/C1 /C5 on a daily drivers Alloys?
Or if anything else is greatly better than them.
Cheers

I'm doing this exact comparison on my own car, one side has CSL the other C1.

C1 has 'better' water behaviour but both still there doing their thing - all 4 alloys are super easy to clean.

If I was purchasing CSL to apply to the paintwork for example I wouldn't then buy C1 just to do the wheels.

cheers

Chris

I've had C5/C1 on wheels before, and C5's on the winter wheels, 2nd season, and have found it good ( way better than things like poorboy's colinite, bsd etc.). On the summer alloys just removed I CSL & Exo'd them inside and out but they're now on the rack until next year, so i'm not going to find out how (hopefully) good that is until well into 2018, atl east curing time wont be an issue!

Was wondering if there's experience out there on the best of the bunch, although I'll use up unfinished C5/CSL, would like to know what's got the best longevity.

I've had CSL on my wheels for about 18months now and reckon the performance is now starting to show signs of getting a bit tired. I think it will make it through to Spring though when I will do them again.

I had C1 on the wheels previously and didn't feel it lasted much more than a year, so definitely a step up in performance from CSL.

From my experience CSL and EXO V2 didn't last any longer than c1/4/5 and certainly didn't make them any easier to clean after the first couple of months once the EXO has started to degrade.
