Default the wax review.

about a year ago, i tested many different wax's availible on my bike to see which one gave the best shine

i used about 4 different brands, and autoglym super resin polish beat the likes of turtle wax, crystal glo polish ect ect

however, i ran out of autoglym today, so while waiting for my bike to be fixed at the stealers, i went into a car shop to get some autoglym.

while i was there, i noticed lots of brands i had never seen before, (even some swiss stuff that cost 250 quid).

i asked the lady who worked there which one she recommended for the shiniest shines. and she gave me this bottle http://meguiars.com/estore/product_d....cfm?sku=G7016

ok, i bought it, at 12 quid i thought it better be good.
got home and opened the box, came with a bottle of wax and an application pad,

tried it on my bike, and was totally blown away with the results. it wasnt this shiny out of the show room.

previously when ive used wax, ive got a little bit on the dash and seat and its left a horrible white mark, this time. when i got a bit on my seat, i rubbed it off, and it came up shiny as anything.
so i proceeded to use it on everyhitng, headlights, mirrors, iridum screen (thats a bugger for polishing) metalwork (everything apart from brake discs)

it polished straight off and bought out a shine that i have never seen before.

as you can tell - im very pleased with the product, well worth trying out if your into your cleaning

btw, i dont work for this company . .. just very pleased with the results

hope you didn't really use it on everything - those brake discs may look clean but..............

Meguiars are well known in car circles to be the best polish money can buy....

Most expensive doesnt mean best tho...!

Although I would be interested to hear them peddling their case at that price!
