Just to show the effects of Collinite.  The paint on this car is exceptional.

Very good. Used to use the Collinite stuff years ago. The boat wax one. 476? Bit too much like hard work now :biggrin: but it must be lovely to use on a new or nearly new car.

Excellent product and great finish.

Which one did you use? My favourite is Collinite 915 Marque D'Elegance, the effort is well rewarded.

I am another who uses Collinite 915. Great product that lasts a long time.

I use Meguairs ultimate polish as a base for the Collinite and always impressed with the finish.

Very nice, the Mesa Red looks great when properly clean and in the sunshine 👍

I guess like many others I started off using products like Collinite years ago when I first started getting into detailing. No doubt it gives a long lasting finish, and it's strong on the VFM scale as a pot lasts for years...and years...

However, time has moved on and there are plenty of other products around that give as good, or better, finish with less effort. I must have 10-15 (should do an inventory really!) wax, polish and sealant products from the expensive (Swissvax) to the mundane (Megs) with lots in between, and TBH most do a great job with the right preparation and you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference. C'est la vie - I've found it's really easy to see a better finish when you've 'invested' more money in a product!

Yes, whether that investment is time, money or effort the more spent the 'better' the results. 

I've moved on since getting my RC with its ceramic coating. I use Meg's Xpress spray wax as it can be applied to a wet car, saves one wipe over. In between washes, to de-dust, I use Meg's Last Touch. Both products bought by the gallon. Cheap, easy and works!

That said I have on occasion gone over the horizontal surfaces with Meg's Ultimate liquid wax, just as extra protection against bird lime.

Fairy liquid and a sponge or if I'm pushing the the boat out I'll go for the £1.50 minicab offer at the local IMO.
