Yeah ... I got a can of FK1000 lieing around as well since forever. Old, tested product, that works very well and is my go to product for any "normal" person that jsut wants a good, lasting coat, with proper shine. This is an absolute workhorse for a good price.

Sonax polymer netshield gets my vote. Buy a bottle of their brilliant shine detailer and you have some sterlings to spend on other things.

I also started using FK1000p this year and it is hugely impressive.

Super easy to use, can go in most surfaces (including smooth plastic trim), looks great, sheds most of the dirt when it rains, seems to last for months and months.

Really have been so pleased with this huge tin for under £20.

I have had FK for years and always go back to it so cheap and reliable and lasts well. Easy to use too

For ease of use, I'd have to say Optimum's Optiseal. Or their new Hyperseal if you want it to last a little longer.

It’s interesting there’s such a massive following for the FK1000p here! What’s the consensus on durability? (A rough idea on time between applications and mileage would be really appreciated)

FK1000P lasts for months .. it's not a short one among the easy to apply normal "waxes". Should be around the longest lasting "waxes". It's around since a long while and never ceased to be top. It's the do it all: Cheap, lasts, shines, easy. You can try something like 12 Month Fusso COat for something similar in type, but probably more expensive.

I got my first tin of FK1000p beginning of July this year.

Its been on the shopping trolley since then, with only being washed a few times and its only recently started to look like it wasnt quite as shiny or beading quite as well - so i would say 6 months is not unreasonable on that basis.

My daily driver got a coat of FK beginning of July also, then a deep clean and a fresh coat in September and it is still going strong from that - lots of self cleaning going on in strong rain and a quick shampoo brings the epic beading and shine right back up.

Super easy to apply and to buff off - It really is, in my limited experience of using it, very, very impressive stuff.

... And just £20 for a huge tub
