Ordered this over the xmas break and my God it's good.
I've spent years trying brand name high gloss polishes, autoglym, Maguire's etc. And even the ones which pop up on ads as being the best thing since sliced bread but this worked so well and super easy to apply, even smells nice.

It looks very shiny! It’ll be interesting to see how it lasts! Good job.

Ive used that too. Nice product and good finish but I found it a bit "grabby" when running hand over the surface and not as smooth as something like chemical guys hybrid V7.

So I actually mixed the two together in one bottle, half V7 and half the Sonax. You get all the slickness of the V7 and the durability of the Sonax. Plus the finish is excellent.

I use it as a drying aid.

As said above it can be a bit grabby but if you squirt it on each panel before you dry it it works really well.

It's frequently on offer on Amazon and Euro Car Parts and can be a real bargain if you time it well.

I dilute and run it through a snow foam lance in the winter wash last step. Its similar in effect to Valetpro snow seal.

In the summer I will add it as directed but agree its a bit grabby compared to other QDs. However, the shine is great and lasts fairly well.

If I'm using lazy style via lance in the winter I will put in about 20% of a lance bottle and top up with water. I must admit I'm not ever exact.

In the summer if using as a simple drying aid I will dilute 50:50.

I just spray it on the wet car. One panel at a time. Spread it out then buff it off.

Don't let it dry onto the paint on a warm day though.

I bought a Katsu blower (eBay or Amazon, can't remember which, about £17. Does the job.
