Well Rounded Wax - Black Metallic Daily Driver

Looking for a new wax. Perhaps up to £50 but ideally less

Stuff I'd hope to achieve:
  • Durable - Real time 5-6 month longevity (daily driver of roughly 1000 miles per month)
  • Easy off - My paint is black and loves to show off a bit of micro-marring
  • Good depth & will let the metallic finish sparkle in the light

I've tried BH DSW and while it does achieve most of these, I do find it a bit irritating at times. It is quick to become grabby and sometimes I notice a 'greasy' finish in the sunlight (which can be reduced with QD). I do apply in cooler temps, cold panels, wet applicator, thin layers, short hazing periods. So i'm happy to persevere with DSW at the minute but would be great to try something new

Thoughts at the minute: In2Detailing CCW, AG UHD, Maybe Collinite 845?

I know there must be 1000000 of these but it's hard to find one that matches my proposed 'requirements' when using the search function!

All suggestions welcome!

infinity wax supergloss + might be worth a look. Their QDX is really good also, i got 2 months durability standalone from just QDX over a glaze on my daily driver and i do about 2000 miles per month.

I've got a metallic black Q3, I used the M&K DW edition wax on it a couple of months ago and it looked awesome, still looks good now too. It's £35 for a 50ml jar. It smells nice as well 🤣

I'm sure they have a 40% off deal on at the minute for certain waxes, might be worth a look.

Britemax Vantage for me, easy on & off, lovely wax that punches way above its price tag.

blackfire paint cleaner http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...lish-cat9.html (used to be called gloss enhancing polish) with bmd morpheus on top is great on black metallic and makes the flake pop and gives 6 months
sample pot will last you ages as it goes on really thin and buffs off with ease
