You guys have some great collections! I’ll add to mine as I see fit, I’m sure there will a few Black Friday bargains that catch my eye.

Nothing wrong with that collection, but be aware it will grow quickly and your pockets will soon be empty

Have you used the Nova Glow or the Winter Special? Have both in my collection but unused

Some very nice collections there. I do have a question though: assuming that these are personal collections and not part of a professional's stock, do you actually get to use them all and rate them objectively? I only ask as I tend to buy waxes or sealants when I need them. I had the same 100ml pot of SNH for a few years and it has only recently been replaced with Fusso coat. That should see me through for another couple of years. I do still have old pots of Dodo Rubbish Boys JE, FK1000p and Vic's Red but that's it. The exorbitant price of waxes over here only adds to the issue. I don't want to get into the 'which one is better' argument and there is certainly no criticism; rather the reasoning behind purchasing so many.

The Winter Wax won’t be used as it’s for my O.C.D Waxes collection. I have a 50ml panel pot of Nova Glow so will most likely use that, when I get a chance.

It’s like anything in life “what ever floats your boat” Lol....I use all my wax’s on my cars and my wife’s cars,friends cars etc....plus it all depends what I want to try out at the time as the saying goes “variety is the spice of life”or something like that Lol... it’s like my trainers my wife is always telling me do I really need another pair of Jordan’s as I have so many already at least 7 pairs that’s never touched the tarmac Lol,but if I have the money to purchase something without jeopardising my everyday bills then why notI will eventually get around to using my stuff.SJ.

I have several waxes that will never be used purely because they are one off and can't be replaced but then I have some that are well used and standard versions of the 'special' pots

Its my one vice in life and I get enjoyment from the anticipation of the delivery, sad I know but I get pleasure from it in my old age and the enemy let's me do it without any moaning which is unusual

I was thinking this myself, why would we have a 'collection?'

I think it is for several of the above comments mixed together. For me, I always try to better the finish, so it is natural progression. Sometimes if the product isn't too expensive like Fuzzo you can buy them as and when.

While certain products work on certain colours better then others.

To cut to the chase, I also seem to have inadvertently got my self a bit of a collection. Not something I set out to do, but due to them lasting quite well and not being patient enough to empty one to buy it's replacement.
