No abrasives in BF Polish does make me keen to try it eventually. In terms of abrasive content is Amigo more or less than Tripple.

I would class amigo as a straight glaze, but polymer based. The blackfire all in one (it may be called total something now) has a small amount of cut, but with the added polymers. Its very good and not "aggressive" at all

I have a sample pot of DDJ purple haze that used to coat my car 2 years ago and seem to recall that was really easy and having just checked there is a enough for a couple of coats so will give that a go as again on the boot lid.

Reading a few other sites and R222 seems to come up a lot as still after all these years providing an outstanding finish whilst being easy on and off. Has anyone used it this recently as itís rarely mentioned.

can confirm its a dream to apply and remove. by hand only obviously.
I didn't personally get brilliant beading, but the wax im using is old, and I bought it used off here. But (in my opinion) the finish is to die for, and that's more important than beading.

I really like their r222 paint cleanser aswell. I use the paint cleanser under pretty much every wax I apply. and it layers nice too.

Does the paint cleanser contain abrasives as there is nothing to confirm it that can see so far. The wax sound good will need to source some as itís rare that I honestly notice a significant difference. What QD do you use in between waxing. I love BSD but the grabby finish is a tad annoying

I think all paint cleansers have to have a little bite, else how is it gonna clear out the pores.
But youíll not be doing corrective work with any cleanser. You might think you are, coz of the fill, but thatís a different thing.

I was using a 50:50 BSD and AF Glisten as a QD and really liked it.
But Iíve recently been trying out Auto Allure Celator, as it has a bit more fill and seems to really bring out the gloss/flake. But it does rather knock the beading. But again, thereís more important things than beading.

That just reminded me I have enough Purple Haze in a sample pot so will try it again as I seem to recall it was nice to work with. The beads were massive though and led to spotting after it rained but QD can sort that.
