Beeding after one hell of a week for the juke
Wax performing it's job well after spending all week up and down muddy farm tracks and looking like I'd been rallying in it!

I’ve just bought some.

Seems nice.

I had an old HD wax that dried out in the tub, so hopefully this one won’t. This new wax seems on the dry side in the pot, so hopefully the tub is well made and won’t dry out.

While my old poor boys pink wheel wax in a boggo pot bought at the same time is still fine.


My negative, and it’s annoying at this price point, is a stupid big clumsy slider opening box.

It’s useless as soon as it is lifted off a retail shelf.

Why not provide a functional box to store the pot and applicator nicely on a shelf?


I was impressed with the performance of HD, so UHD should be great.

It's an extremely oily wax. Give it a little finger swipe, turns to butter with a little friction.

After 3 weeks of gruelling driving my car got a wash today.
UHD Wax made it an absolute breeze to wash off all crud and bugs which were nicely baked on.

And after a contact wash the residue just rinsed off with ease making drying a doddle.

A real winner this one I feel!

Just to echo what's been said above it's extremely oily when it's worked, give it a little swipe about and hopefully you'll have no issues.

I actually quite liked the box, a bit novel I agree but each to their own I spose

Seems the most reasonable I could see on a quick Google
Not sure if any discount codes on any sites can make one cheaper though

Great review and I have the same opinion!

The easiest wax to use and produces great water behavior.
