I just started using FK recently and i really like the look on my Silver car. Its hard to describe, but as said above, it really does indeed look like you've had the car resprayed with brand new paint and plenty of clearcoat.

As you walk round the car it changes from super glossy to really quite subtle and then back again.

Would it be good for a metallic black car?

I have a metallic black car, personally I find it a bit too "glassy". It's by no means "bad", just not to my taste. It does seem to make the flake pop nicely though. I put it over BH Cleanser Polish on my brother's silver car however and it looked great.

Yes! I did it last year on our daughter's black metallic Polo and will do that again this year. Of course it is a different look than a carnauba wax, it is as mentioned as an extra layer clear coat. FK1000p is a paste sealant. But for the winter durability and easy cleaning is more important than a deep, wet shine from a less durable wax.

And again will your car looks good with it... Yes, it will!

On our silver the look is amazing!
Btw, for more depth you can put on a layer PB black hole or white diamond under the FK1000p. I did that year and it was not less durable. Two layers FK1000p in between 2-3 days works wonders.

Another Fusso user here. Easy on, easy off, great gloss, savage beading and it's cheap as chips - what's not to like!

I also us Bilt Hamber's Auto QD on top of it and find it excellent.

The new version of Britemax Extreme Element looks to be good candidate for the winter prep. Love the Wowo's Nanocoat for its ability to keeping paint clean, I would certainly use that. I would also like to use the ODK Revere and Obsession Wax Icon.

This is a difficult one to answer with the likes of obsession wax releasing icon and the pre release of ODK revere imminent which are rumoured to be ground breaking new waxes that are set to take wax blending to a new level in terms of what is achievable from a wax
I then have the other options of hybrid86, dynasty which all offer great winter protection and that's not forgetting the new wowo's nanocoat wax that was released at waxstock

Which one would you choose is a difficult one to answer
