Default New Favourite

I recently purchased a newish type of wax, (as my current stock is getting low), which I was going to use on my Cat, but after using it on the cat, have now decided to use it on Gruple, as very impressed with the quality of it. Only problem that I found is that it needs to go onto clean paintwork, so set about machine polishing Gruple and have so far done, bonnet, roof, and rear end, just got the doors and front bumper to do, but the beading quality and shine that it gives the car is second to none, much better than a lot of more expensive waxes.

This is the stuff I have used, and so far would highly recommended.

Very good product and I've been using it on my cars for the last 12 mths. or so.
Surface "beading" effect lasts at least 3 mths. but bear in mind that it is not a true wax and is, in fact, PTFE based.

Never tried it myself, but I have heard very good things about it. May have to give it a try .

I am still impressed with Autosmart Topaz.
Is it considered "old hat" and been left behind these days?

Autosmart Topaz is a polish, and I still have some of mine, and much better than Autoglym as it does not stain the plastics, but the Fusso is a totally different product, more of a sealant/wax, and PTFE based, so does last longer and I like it very much

Like Teflon (Cliff) I've not used it but I've read many, many great reviews.

Enjoy the results.

Andy.

Did my TT with it last August Stu, and then again in April, beading last well, bit more difficult to remove than the Collonite I previously used but very happy with it.

Fusso is a great product but it does suffer from fanboyism much like Auto Finesse.
Both excellent ranges but overhyped by forums
