Best Sealant/Wax for brand new car?

Hi, I'm a new member to this forum but have been reading threads on here for a while now.

I am picking up a new 1 series in Mineral Grey Metallic tomorrow. My question is what would be the best sealant or wax or both to go for on a car of this colour and on a new car with no scratches/swirls. I know there are plenty of great waxes and sealants from loads of companies out their but this is just a general guide line and push in the right direction.

Products I am looking at as of now are GTechniq c2v3, Collinite 845, Soft99 Fusso and Mezerna Power Lock.

Really I am looking for a good balance of gloss and durability. I can always use a detailing spray to add extra gloss afterwards.

Any suggestions from your experiences would be great!

Phil.

If you want total ease of use, put a couple of coats of C2V3 on then keep the protection topped up with Gyeon Wet Coat every few washes. Especially suited to this time of year.

Go on the website polishedbliss.co.uk some great articles recommending different options depending on which route you want to go down very informative on each and every product they sell. They have put a lot of thought and research into their descriptions and given their own experience of using said products. they are also a great company to deal with i have found

Hi Cleslie, thanks. That may be a route I might go down. I'm debating also either going for a very durable wax (like soft99 fusso 12 months or Collie 845) as a base coat and then a really nice finishing wax to go over the top for extra depth and gloss or going down the route of a good long lasting sealant and then a finishing wax that doesn't have to be as durable.

That would work well. It's always been popular to put something long lasting down (used to be the domain of sealants but waxes are getting there now too) followed by a less durable but better finishing wax.

Good evening cleslie,

With regards to C2V3 how do you buff it after the spray? I tried to used it before but since it's a water spray form, do you wait for the drops to dry or do you spray and wipe off right away? And I find you wipe it, do you use high gsm buffing cloth or drying cloth?

Many thanks

Kindest regards

J.

Mist a panel and wipe on with one mf then wipe off with anothe mf. It's as easy as a quick deatailer to use. You don't wait for it to dry or anything like that. Shorter pile buffing is best.
