Its more expensive than most to buy but you dont need to use much so it probably works out cheaper.
A bottle of Z16 will last you ages.

I'm yet to find anything better than Gtechniq T1 for looks and durability. It's also more forgiving than Megs endurance if your prep isn't perfect.

I don't know about Gtechniq for some reason. It just seems like a lot of hype. Never used it so shouldn't judge but something just puts me off it

There's a lot of hype with many brands tbh mate. I try stuff and if it works I'll use it, if it doesn't then it stays on the shelf. I haven't opened stuff I previously loved since discovering it. The great thing now is that we have lots of choice from many manufacturers. The new gyeon tyre dressing is getting good reviews from pro users too. I've seen the results but not yet used it myself.
