6 Waxes tried today

Thought Thursday this week would be the ideal time to time my car body work a spring clean up.

It was a wet morning but due to dry up but would be cloudy ( great! )

Items used just today -
Car Chem Cola favoured shampoo
AF Oblitarate
AF Iron Out
Wertstat Prime

Just my luck the sun decided to show its face as half way through using Iron Out. So didn't get to leave it on long.

Gave the car another wash and dry before
using the following waxes on -

ODK Glamour ( 2 rear quarters )
Sirius ( dark Edition ) Passenger door
Helios ( Roof area )
Origins ( Drivers door )
Swissvax Onyx ( front wings and bumper areas )
Auto Finesse Spirit and Illusion ( Front bonnet )

ODK Glamour
Was easy to apply and remove off. The results -














Gave a lovely wet look.

BMD Wax - Sirius ( dark Edition )

I've used this previously but layer over the top of Genesis and I wanted to try this on its own and next to ODK.

Was easy to apply and remove off. The Results -







I couldn't see much between this and the ODK and it was hard to notice any different.

Helios

Had this sample wax for a while now and I just wanted to try it.
Again easy to apply and remove off. The results -











Origins
Again had this sample wax for a while and wanted to give it a try
Again easy to apply and remove off. The results -





Swissvax Onyx

Had this off a fellow DW a while ago and just haven't tried it. Very easy to apply and remove. The results -













Last but not least

Auto Finesse Spirit and Illusion

After hearing a lot of comments of the 2 waxes being used together thought I would them a try on the hardest part of the car I feel the bonnet.

As always with AF waxes I feel they apply like butter and again easy to wipe off. I did feel when the illusion was buffed off it did indeed add another finish look. The results -













Final car shots

very nice.

the big question: apart from usage and removal differences - do you spot any difference in the looks?

I don't know if it was because the rear quarters were a bigger area than the doors , but I felt the ODK looked the wettest finish but as you can see in the couple of quarter pictures there wasn't much different but will be interesting to see the durability between the two.

I was gutted I couldn't take some pics this morning of the beading due to location but hopefully on the next occasion when its been raining.

I did have a look thought and thought the AF Spirit and Illusion beaded the best and the Helios beaded nice on the roof area but the slope of the hill might of made the sitting of the beading different.

Very nice review and showcase, I can see for the pictures Glamour looks more glossier and wetter than the rest, that's a wet finish on the Daytona grey.

Regardess of the different waxes, the car looks in superb order mate.
The ODK and the Swissvax look really well to me though.

I was very impressed with the ODK it gave that wetter look ( which is the finish I like ) I was impressed with the Swissvax and it was a shame it was only applied to a small area of the car and it applied lovely and must admit the easiest to remove ( although all were ok to remove ) it was very easy to remove

Car looks wonderfully wet and glossy Lee

I think the Spirit and Illusion combo on the bonnet looks awesome.

Do like the look of that odk.

I know it's all subjective as different panels reflect light differently but from your pictures the autofinesse combo looks bloody awesome! Followed closely by the odk.

Shame really as ive not tried either of these waxes. What does the odk retail at? I Wouldn't mind trying some illusion and spirit but I do like the look of odk.
