The products on test were Auto Glym Extra Gloss Protection and Finish Kare’s 1000P for the sealants, vs Collinite 476 and Dodo Juice Purple Haze for the waxes.

I washed the car, prepped with Prima Amigo, and then separated my bonnet into 4 quarters with blue tape.

In the video you get to compare the reflections and see the beading and sheeting characteristics of each product before I reveal which is which.

There is time in the video for you to pause and make your predictions, so let me know below how successful (or otherwise) you were at guessing which product was in which quarter.

Let me know if you think that there is anything flawed in my methodology, as I want these kind of tests to be as fair as I can make them. Let me know what you think I should try in my next head-to-head.
Enjoyed the video - what will be really interesting is what do they look like in two months time. Most LSPs have pretty good water behaviour and appearance when freshly applied...

Interesting video and discussion about wax/sealants. Manufacturers package their products with the general public in mind (and dollar signs in their eyes) as Joe Public would not know what a sealant is.
