Review: Country wax - Austria

Hi All,

So this time iv been using Austria wax which was designed for use on Pearl or flip paint. I bought this specifically for my 3 series as it can have a really nice flip colour in different light, without knowing youd just think it was blue.

Iv previously used Swissvax BOS on this car and it gave a very nice finish. After using Austria on this paint i was stunned by the finish it gave, the gloss levels and reflection shots and the way the colour of the car changes with this wax from angle to angle is amazing. I think for the time this car stays with me il be using this wax from now on. If i was working on another Pearl or Flip paint car, this would be the wax id be reaching for every time.

Some shots pre application:





Some shots after removal:





















Finally some beading shots:







Thanks for reading.

Thanks, its a bit more blue than silver really, a very strange colour as when i saw photos of the car before i bought it, i thought it was grey, then it turned out to be this blue flip colour

And how is the wax still performing after 12 months ?

How long does it 'last' for before a reapply required ?
