Iíve just finished a 3 stage polish, took me weeks! Iím very happy with the finish, also very happy with Enigma and the crazy water behaviour it gives but thought I may get a better gloss finish using a wax designed for that purpose.

How would you rate the finish from enigma against the others you have suggested? Thanks

Your focus looks cracking, very nice indeed! Iíve actually got a pot of HD wax, it was the first wax I tried on my e90 a few months ago before it was machine polished and the gloss is really great - I just fancy a change!

I have used SRP followed by 3 coats of AG HD wax on my metallic black cars for years and I get it to last 3-4 months easily, what sort of duration should i be expecting from Obsession PHAENNA as I fancy a change.

And yes the garage is a mess and I have not buffed off properly a small area - i have a problem with applying too much product.

I have only used my mates enigma on a front wing, where the panel was not machined or corrected just wanted see the ease of use and the water behaviour characteristics so cannot give your answer, sounds like you expected enigma too give a wetter gloss in the first place.

With blackfire and fuzion I class them as show waxes, by they are oiler in nature by the carriers and wetting agents, fuzion for me pips it for the wetter finish and clarity but enigma does give exceptionally clarity anyway.

Which finishing polish and pad do you use bud, not doubting you on your expertise here just curious.

Used dodo juice purple haze and recently fusso gloss.

Purple haze was glossy and the fusso gave great beading

Also used fp1000 which gave great water behaviour too

This is with SRP earlier in the year:
