Just tried the collinite wax, the fancy one (excellence or concourse or somthing)

Have had it on a week and 600 odd miles and it's still shines up the lovely green flecks in the black paint in the sun, best wax IMO

I must try some of the black hole stuff before hand as am using mer polish, it's ok but leaves aforementioned white marks!

All topped off with a spriz of autoglym rapid detailer after a few days, bloody dusty in London!

Anyone figured out how to keep the roller marks off the window? Ie lower window and a streak of an inch wide appears, drives me mad

Bilt Hamber Hydra-Wax is an outstanding product. So easy to apply and buff off and leaves a stunning finish, with no difficult residues to deal with. Only downside is that it doesn't last as long as some other waxes or sealants, but who cares when you can wax an entire car in under 30 mins.

If you have a few swirls, try a couple of passes of Prima Amigo using firm pressure. This stuff has very light cutting compounds to soften the effect of any swirl marks or minor scratches and has fillers to hide what it can't remove. Also makes black appear deeper and wetter. Note that this stuff is also a pretty aggresive and useful paint cleanser, though always top off with at least one coat of wax/sealant.

cannot recommend new Auto Finesse products highly enough, especially Rejuvenate which is immense in its cleaning and finish abilities. Needs a wax over the top though.
Tripple is also worth a chance, cleanser/filler/wax in one, far superior to SRP.

both absurdly easy to use.

Will be investing in some of the AF products in the spring. Triple has great reviews.

IMO blackhole is good but CG easy creme glaze is better, topped off with blacklight and some Z8
