Still waiting for someone to tell me if they have used Zymol at all. I have a silver car so would need wax best suited for that colour.

Have something to contribute?

I've used and still are using Zymol on various silver cars,first it was carbon which was very nice and then i got a s/hand pot of titanium,the titanium gives a bit more flake,even on silver !

Ive got my eyes on the Zymol Titanium, it is quite dear, but for what it is do you think its worth the retail price? And what shampoo do you use to clean the car if you have used the Zymol wax..?

It's hard to say if it's worth the retail price,like a lot of things the gap between an good wax and an expensive wax has got smaller,i'd go onto Detailing World and look at buying some sample pots and see what works for you,i use colly 845 (15 quid) on the g/f's car (only because it keeps getting bird bombs and it's cheaper to keep renewing the colly ) and that gives a lovely finish that can really lasts !,my shampoo is Zymol clear,i first used it as i got in a set,but now i keep an eye out for any deals as it's pricey as well,but any of the "good" shampoos will do,it's more important to follow the amount recommended as too much shampoo is a waste of money and could strip your wax,HTH.

Ditto Above, Harly Wax is the business for a good wet look, and hides alot of paintwork imperfections.

About 18 a tin......search ebay.

Does it work good on a lighter coloured car though (silver) because darker cars give off a better shine.

mine is silver and i think it looks good on harleys or autoglym hd wax but i can tell you had my car a few years and silver is hard colour to make pop so getting a wet look will make reflections better giving a nice look esp in afternoon and night

Hi all, just want to know what waxes you have tried and which works the best.
My personal budget for a tin of wax is 50, so before I buy I just want some opinions and advice.

Thanks any info would be helpful

SIMONIZ No 1 in the gold tin .about 8.00 excellent old fashoned wax
