I'm trying to decide between sticking with my old faithful EGP or trying either FK2685, 1000p or biting the bullet and buying some HD Wax.

Decisions decisions, although there is a 2 week old coating of DSW on the car at the moment.

Its either gonna be my regular FK1000p or Gyeon cancoat (gotta use it up before it solidifies in the bottle).

Soft99 Fusso Coat 12m, but this time around it will be a dark version . I fancy the black tin more than a light one . It will maybe get ocassional top up with Gyeon Wet Coat.

DSW topped with CPNo1SG as a drying aid after every wash

I have some Gtechniq C2 Liquid Crystal. Is this the type of sealant to use for winter? I also have Bilt Hamber Double Speed Wax.

I'm trying to find out the best way to protect my car over the winter months.

Worth noting that FK2685, whilst very easy to apply and remove and looking nice is not a durability monster. That said, if you take the opportunity to top it up every couple of months you'll be fine. If you want easy to apply to a whole car, *and* durability, you'll struggle to beat FK1000P.

Well that's my go to wax, what about you guys?
Had fantastic results last year with DSW (on top of cleanser polish) so no reason to change. DSW is similar to Collinite 476 in that it is detergent proof, though (this is my opinion), i feel DSW would edge out Collinite 476 in a durability test. (I think Finis wax edged out FK1000p and Collinite 476 in a durability test by a member on here).

Collinite is pretty solid though, been around since 1936.
