Best glossy wax/finish

Hey all

Have used a few different waxes but looking for something that gives the best glossy/mirrored finish. Not too worried on the durability, just keen to see what products people have used that leave that wow finish. On a brilliant blue colour Merc if that helps

Thanks

Theres a lot of answers for this question. I actually asked it myself when I first joined the site.

High gloss summer wax Thread

For me atleast it came down to 2 things: How little durability are you happy with? days? and whats your budget. Cos theres some very nice Zymol and Swissvax in the ŁthousandsŁ

Just a shout for Zaino Z8 has a topper to your LSP as this will give you a lovely gloss finish.

My fav stand alone gloss/wet look wax has always been AF Illusion, very ltd durability but cracking gloss levels.

I must say though, if you prep the paint right beforehand, most waxes will give you a beaut finish as it's all about the prep.

Just used ODK revere on my Astra sports tourer and the photos don’t do it justice, I think the thread is on the first page of the showroom if you fancy a read.

Moved to the correct section.

The best finish comes from the best preparation. There are many waxes that give a great finish, ODK Glamour comes to mind amongst others!

How about a hand made product from BMD? Sirius or Morpheus will give the desired results or there’s Showstopper from the new Enthusiast range at a much cheaper price point.
