I won't be replacing my Swissvax BoS with it, that's for sure.... but hey.. I've got a load of new waxes to try out.. so might just do a comparison between Dodo Juice Black Widow, Purple Haze, Blue Velvet, and the Turtle wax... as they all claim to be 'colour enhancing'.
I must say, I never thought I'd see BoS in the same quote as TW Colour Magic

As they say mate, variety is the spice of life.

Also, as much as I love BoS, I absolutely under no circumstances think it's worth the money. Lovely wax, and I'm glad I got it as the pot has a special place in my collection... but I wouldn't buy it again I don't think. Not BoS at least... maybe shield.. but that's a different story again!

Actually not bought but given, Autoglym UHD wax and shampoo.
I normally wouldn’t spend that kind of money on wax, as I like BH wax, and Fk1000p, but let see where the hype is about.
A good friend dropped it of, after I fixed the electrical adjustable seats in his car, and cleaned the grease of the seats the dealer left there after 3 attempts to fix them.

That was a very nice gesture - please let us have your thoughts after using the wax.

Thanks,

I like both of them, have 2 tins of wax, no more shampoo unfortunately. I found the shampoo felt great sliding over the paintwork, much more "luxurious" than my usual BH. It is though quite expensive unless bought for a special treat.

Ended up buying a 15m replacement rubber hose last night from Direct Hoses.

When I have to wash the car outside my house, I often find I dont have quite enough length so this seemed like a good purchase
