Hmmm Anyone tried Autoglym's new HD wax yet?

I bought some at Stanford on Sunday

£35 for a nice kit of two applicators and a microfibre cloth. The polish is a paste in a tub. Smells nice.

Will get around to using it soon and will post the results

Best to keep out of the my 'polish' is better than your polish wars....as I have said before , "Standing there with a car that almost glows in the dark , a fellow walks up and says what did you use?....when told , he just shrugs and says, I prefer my 'polish'

User report

The stuff is excellent. Dead easy to use. Apply with one of the damp sponges provided, allow to dry for 10- 15 minutes, remove with the cloth provided.

Really does give a massively deep shine

Only did the GT bonnet though then got Knackered after washing 3 cars

I've got some too, that I've not used yet......
Great kit and nicely packaged.
I've read that you can do the whole car, leave for a bit then buff off???
I suppose thats the same with alot of products though depending on the weather.

The longer you leave it, the easier it comes off. I still say the Aquawax is brilliant too though.

Re: Anyone tried Autoglym's new HD wax yet?

Yeah i would only use it twice a year or so after a good polish and maybe clay.......but I got it free anyway!
Aquawax or other similar spray waxes / detailing sprays are fantastic for weekly washing, but wont compare to stuff like the HD for lasting protection.

Re: Anyone tried Autoglym's new HD wax yet?

One of the best things I remember using was a SImoniz product. Wasn't a wax but a silicon or something else. This was years ago and I was 14/15 and washing my uncles TVR. Gave an amazing finish and water just ran off it instead of beading 1st. Wish I could remember what it was called, never been able to find it.

Re: Anyone tried Autoglym's new HD wax yet?

That pic really doesn't do it justice

Seriously, for someone who is obsessive about his cars, this stuff really impressed me for ease of use & quality of finish

For me, Autoglym is the answer to my prayers!!!!!
