My thoughts:

Colly476: Durable but too hard to use and smell isn't good 6/10

Colly845: Almost as durable but easier to use 7/10

Powerlock: Very nice to use but not durable enough. Leaves very deep blingy look 6/10

BH Finis-wax: One of my all-time favorites. Very durable and easy to use. I just hope that it would attract less dust. Epic water behavior. 9/10

ADS 2K coating: Very glossy deep "glow" and easy to use 9/10

ADS Sicko: Very easy to use and leaves very nice looks. Hydrophillic 8/10

C2v3: One of the easiest product to use but I prefer Reload or BSD. Not so durable than manufacturer claims 6/10

Reload: Lovely sealant and good smell also. Very economical but could last longer 8/10

BSD: Best water behavior together with finis-wax but isn't easiest product to use 8/10

Sonax PNS: Little grabby application but darkens paint very nicely and last and sheets very nicely. 8,5/10

BH Double Speed-wax: Easier to apply than finis-wax and leaves glossier finish with similar water behavior. 9/10

Fk pink wax: Very nice to spread. Wet looking finish especially good when using dark cars. 8,5/10

Waxes - meh longevity and dust and dirt stick to them more. I will no longer use waxes.
Sealants - better longevity, look good (shiny) if your into that.
Coatings - best longevity. LOVE the glassy look and depth of CQUK. Car stays cleaner longer and makes washing a breeze. Ive never had drying towels glide so easily over the paint.

i would really like to get some more feedback on this wax, durability and looks.

Petes 53 great cheapeish entry wax, great beading and lovely to work with 7.5

Af illusion another great one to work with easy on and easier off, like butter, adds a really silky feel and a lovely warm look, a show wax so not expecting great durability. Looks and ease it's an 8

Af desire - pig to work with, didn't think it added anything looks wise, durability also didn't live upto expectation, for me not worth the 120£, for me personally this gets a 5.5 maybe my prep back when I used it needed to be better perhaps, I know others have raved about it

Collinite 476 - Good durability and cheap. Can be a ***** to remove if you put it on slightly too thick. Not very user friendly. 5/10

Dodo juice Supernatural - Nit very durable. I loved the smell but the secondary curing was annoying 6/10

Dodo juice supernatural hybrid - Smells odd. Easy to apply abd remove and has good durability 7/10

Autobrite black magic - smelt like chocolate. Was easy to apply and remove and had good durability and was a lovely wax 8/10

Autoglym HD - By far one of my favourite. So easy to apply and remove. Lasts ages and has a cracking finish. 9/10

Fk1000p - Amazing product. Much the same as the above but even easier to apply and remove and lasts for ages. 9/10

Soft 99 Fusso Dark - just like Fk1000p and needs no prep before. Has amazing water characteristics and leaves a cracking finish 9/10

Got loads more to do

I totally agree here a very underrated wax and product, did you find the looks are very identical to p21s by any chance only if tried and compared but Sonax does last longer and cheaper as well.
