Iíve been using Angelwax Cleanliness at 1:5 as it says on the bottle, I donít think itís a coincidence that itís failed on the areas that get the most dirt.

Can't give you any comparisons of both but tried Angelwax Enigma recently and must say I love the entire range, after applying the wax the car beads like mad in the rain and is noticeably cleaner after only pressure washing, the QED makes things too easy to topup the protection too.

So was mine for the first month and Iím a massive fan of the Angelwax range and have nearly every product they do but I canít get away from the fact the wax has failed so quickly even though it has been applied and maintained to the letter.

Something has gone wrong there. The wax alone would not fail yet. I suspect Enigma shampoo doesn't quite have the cleaning power of something dedicated entirely to cleaning, like Carpro Reset. It might just be that the wax coating is clogged.

The Fusion is in stock now. Bought a pot two weeks ago

Is it just me or is Fusion getting more and more expensive by the minute? It wa £75 last spring when I was thinking about it and just over £80 about 3/4 months ago. It's now £88. I don't need any now but think at this rate by the time I need it I may need to remortgage!

It was £80 when I bought it probably 18 months ago.

If its a durable winter wax that you’re after but still want it to be glossy and good beading etc etc have a lookst BMD Hercules. (With PTFE)

50ml sample pots are £25.

It applies very thinly being a hard wax and buffs off very easily just like every other BMD wax. The gloss and slickness is amazing once buffed off and the water behaviour is aldo very very good.

What impresses me most is its ability to keep the car cleaner for longer by repelling road grime. Not all waxes can boast this as sometimes a waxed finish can allow the grime to cling

Swissvax Shield has a genuine rival.

I was thinking to try my Enigma ,done on the normal prep work was going to go over with BH cleanser fluid before applying the wax.
What like is it to put on and buff off?
