Cool How long will my wax job last?

I just put down Klasse AIO, then 3 coats of Klasse sealant and then a coat of Souveran wax. The AIO says it would last up to 6 months, The sealant says it will last up to 1 year, and Souveran says it will last up to 3 months. So since I put 3 coats of sealant on does that mean my sealant/wax job will last up to 3 years and 9 months? I am have kidding but how long do you think it will last. I garage my car every night.

Souveran will last you one to three months depending on the weather, and if she is garaged (which she is), and simple stuff, like do you live by the ocean, all this plays into durability.
You will be able to tell when the Souveran leaves you, the klasse has a different look then carnauba. But after first time around you will know.

I'd guess for the total combination you're looking at 4-6 months depending on environment and maintenance.

for best results reapply a coat of Souveran every month. Klasse should last around 4 months for sure. It all depends on a climate you live in.

So whether you put on 1 or 3 coats the Klasse will still only make it 3 or 4 months?

I would say YES....the addiional coats would be to guarantee coverage not necessarily durability.....

They will help with durability, but it doesn't make an overly significant difference.

I seriously doubt you will outlast the Klasse durability issue. You will likely "want" to detail again prior to it giving out completely. Around six months for the twins when kept up with washing. Souveran as a topper is the issue. Around 4 weeks max, and remember to use the Crystal Mist after each wash to keep the POP alive.
