Yes it is good. It is like a watered down easier to use version of the hard wax and worth its money IMO. Trouble is just like the hard wax the look it creates is not to everyones liking and many people these days want more glossy / fancy appearance. It does not go as far as a big tin of the hard wax though, not even close, those big tins last ages if spread thinly.
Its just good overall, easy to use and fair price.

This is the thread for me!

Man i love the stuff! Literally the only wax i use now - as mentioned - apply it thinly & it goes along long way - for me, i find it leaves a perfectly acceptable finish, however, as mentioned, i top mine up with Autobrite Project 32 (64) for that extra gloss if required.

But it terms of price, durability & finish i bloody love the stuff!

Must be 1 of the easiest wax’s to use. Pretty much idiot proof use thin or slap on thick still a doddle to remove lasts good few months and is cheap just not very fashionable don’t come in fancy packaging
Really good as a wheel wax

Gets my vote! Great stuff, no frills but does the job very well all over the car, including glass which they don’t seem to recommend but I still apply it. My girlfriend just bought a red polo, it will be getting some 845 after correction! Only downside is the bottle, it’s just an open top, would recommend placing in another type of applicator bottle or buying a pour type lid. As the guys said, you don’t need much but with an open top I found I over applied it to the applicator a little.

845 is my "go to" LSP. It's a doddle to use, does the job well and most importantly the protection lasts for ages. I then use a Sonax BSD/V07 mix to top-up during maintenance washes.

Agree with the above about the bottle. It's definitely worth getting a dispenser bottle - http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...ser-cat25.html

Love it !

I attach any old spray head to the bottle and place the bottle in warm/hot water till it goes very thin - then use the spray head to apply ... couple sprays per panel and then use an applicator to spread

Easy to apply and a great finish
