Finis or Double Speed-Wax both pretty durable, DSW stands up to detergents better (ie regular washing) but Finis more physically durable, maybe better if you do a lot of miles.

They're both great to be honest DSW has a bit better beading, Finis has a slightly warmer more "'nuba" look to it.

It is indeed very durable, here is an interesting side by side test.

bilt-hamber kid, just a quick question following on from this, could you layer finis over the top of DSW?, I have been using DSW for 2 years now, on a silver car, but always wish I could have just a fraction more warmth to the overall finisn.

Very impressed with DSW's longevity over winter, great product in my opinion.

I think you're asking if they're just a company selling products, and they have a lab make the products?

They are the lab, so to speak, so yes i think is the right answer to your question.

You could do but I would prefer to use finis one layer alone for added warmth
