Question I'm feeling testy... what do you want to see?

Hey Y'all,

It's been a while since I did a wax test, and I really need to burn through some products I have lying around as I usually only use the same handful when I detail stuff. I have an SUV in super boring silver as the test vehicle, so durability is the only metric really worth following (I tried to inspect a couple different polishes but it was way to hard to tell through photographs).

Off the top of my head I don't know EVERYTHING I have in the bin, but I'll list below what I can remember and I'll update it tonight once I take inventory. If there is something you'd like to see tested you can send me a sample of it and I'll include it, but I want to keep this down to a handful of products otherwise taping and sectioning will become pretty difficult (also, some areas of the car wear/fade faster then others. I'm also not going to include cleaner waxes or AIOs in this, just true sealants/waxes. I have included Sonax BSD and Meguiars Ultimate Quick detailer as they offer some real protection, with real water behavior.

What I gots.

Autoglym HD Wax
Autoglym EGP
Collinite 476S
Finish Kare FK1000P
Mother FX Synthetic Paste Wax
Poorboys EX sealant (this stuff is old, not sure how good it is now)
Chemical Guys Wheel Guard (barely been used)
Diamond Kote Gold Paint restorer (I may have binned this, I'll double check)
Diamond Kote NanoCrystal Paint Protection (Dealer applied coating)
Bilt Hamber Finnis Wax
Sonax BSD
Sonax PNS (Haven't used yet)
Meguiars Ultimate Quick Detailer

OK, let me know what you want to see. I'll put a poll at the top, and add a "other" tab for you to suggest (and provide) something that isn't on the list.

EDIT: I forgot a Poorboys and Finnis Wax on the poll (jumped pages and I couldn't remember). Is there a way to edit a poll?

OK, I checked my stock, I do in fact still have the Diamond Kote Gold paint restorer, I actually have 2.

The above list is accurate to the products I have, so lets say Poorboys EX and Bilt Hamber Finnis Wax are included in "Other"

Now get voting!

Have you got any rinseless or waterless wash products that you can test and demonstrate?

Another vote for waterless / rinseless wash with hosepipe bans looming.

No, currently I am not facing any water restrictions in my area, and usually don't for very long, so I don't invest in those. This thread is about wax durability testing only.

I would like to see a sealant test so Sonax PNS against EGP, FK1000P, EXP and Diamond Kote Nanocrystal. You could test these against a wax too, maybe Finis Wax as this won the wax durability test.
