I used Enigma at the start of the year. I think a bit of "Expectation Management" is needed with it. Yes, for a wax the paint stays cleaner for longer than others, but it is not a coating, so no scratch resistance and it wont last for years.

It is a fine wax, like Blueberry says, water behaviour is phenominal, and application is a joy on a cool panel. Its not fussy at all like coatings can be so easy for a novice like me. I'm glad I bought a sample! It gives a nice finish too. It does prefer bare paint though, but everything does, I guess.

So just remember it's a wax and you'll love it.

I've decided to go for some Fusso, it seems to last as long have equally as good water behaviour for much much less cost after trawling the interweb.

I personally wont be able to tell which is which on a blind test like 99.9%of the population.

Maybe one day I'll stump up the cash....

You will by the beading. Fusion has some of the best perfectly formed, beads Iíve ever seen.

I have Fusso and AW Enigma. It's pretty easy to see the difference on our car even in blind testing. Each creates a different look and TBH I didn't like the look for Fusso on our pearl black car.

I have enigma on my new black vrs and no issues with it would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a quality wax. The large pot will last a long long time so probably best to buy the smaller pot at first for the first time and check out the results.

I have recently applied Enigma to bare panel wiped paintwork.
It goes on very well although you must fight the temptation to slap it on like I did, a few thin coats with avoid any cloudy or high spots.
It buffs off effortlessly.
Water behaviour is insane, water flies off the car at very low speed with will account for some of the self cleaning.

I guess now itís a case of waiting 6 months to see but Matt at Angelwax advised that by using engima shampoo I could get a year out of the wax with 2 thin coats onto bare will prepped paintwork.

Update on enigma:
Itís completely failed in the areas that take the most dirt like the lower front door panel, no water behaviour at all in those areas and some areas of the bonnet too.
Itís been washed with enigma shampoo 5 times and had a coat of enigma QED. Iím unimpressed and will be stripping it off and applying fifth element instead.

I would expect enigma to last a lot longer than a month, especially at its price point. Have you been using a strong pre wash on it
