On to the Migliore Primo review. Here's what I think of the wax:
I tried this wax out on my car a about a week ago when it was still pretty cold outside. It took quite a long time to cure (I did a swipe test roughly every 5 minutes), but in the end, curing time was about 25 minutes +/-. The first time I removed it was relatively easy and just for testing purposes, I did half of my hood with Migliore Primo and the other half with Swissvax Concorso. It wasn't as easy to remove as the SW, but then again, not as greasy. After removing it, I swiped the MF across both halves of the hood and I could feel a huge difference between the 2 waxes. The SW had a nice, slick feel to it but the Migliore... well I could actually feel
that there was wax on the car and I like that. After swiping my MF across the hood enjoying the feel of Migliore, I broke out the garden hose and started spraying to test the sheeting. I got hypnotized by the beads and wound up spraying my car for a good 5 minutes, enjoying that too
. Every time I sprayed it the Migliore side was almost completely dry, while the SW side left little patches of beads all over it. I sprayed it from several different angles just to be fair and the results were the same every time. Very nice sheeting action, very nice.
Now that the weather's finally warm here, I decided to give it another test run. Applying it this time was much easier than before and I'll attribute that to the temperature. This is a very solid wax; almost like rubbing an applicator on a soft candle... kind of like Colly 885, but this wax smells MUCH nicer
. It's got a very pleasant, natural orange scent to it... nice touch. It went easy, though not as easy as most. It's got more of a "silky" feel to it, rather than "greasy". After letting it cure for about 25-30 minutes (the manufacturer says remove after 10 min.), I did the swipe test, but it was still a bit tacky. I then started to remove it with a MF and in some places it was grabby, but in others came off quite easily, but not as easily as most boutique waxes. I stopped removing it after a few swipes because it really didn't feel like it was cured yet. I don't know if you've ever seen a 599 GTB in person or not, but it's a WIDE automoble. I'm 6' tall and when leaning over it at about a 45 degree angle, my fingers barely touch the middle. When I applied the wax to the hood, I literally swiped the applicator (and really, just a quick swipe across the wax) 3 times to wax the hood, and it seems that I applied WAY too much! Then, I grabbed the Maki, put on a finishing pad, misted the car lightly with water and began to spread the wax more evenly. 10 minutes later it was easier to remove, but again, not the easiest wax I've ever removed (I'll point the finger at the weather for the easier removal the first time). It was still a bit grabby, but that's not really a bad thing.
Despite being a bit difficult to remove (I will be giving this wax another go shortly), IMO this is an excellent wax. Again, it's a wax that you can literally feel on the paint; kind of like wearing a Breitling... you KNOW it's there. If I get the chance to spit-shine a car again, this will be my wax of choice because it's just got that spit-shine wax feel to it. I can't comment on durability, but by the way this wax feels on the car, I'm going to guess it'll outlast most of the nubas I have.
If you're one of those people that expects your wax to go on like butter and come off like nothing was there, this is not the wax for you. I figured I'd make that disclaimer because I've seen it happen too many times where people go out and buy waxes based on something they've heard, then they get the wax home, don't read the instructions, can't apply or remove it easily, then they hate the wax and talk crap about it. This wax will require a little more effort to apply and remove, but that little extra effort is well worth it. Also, it's one of those "polish after removal to bring out the shine" waxes. It leaves a bit of residue on the paint (well, at least on this dark chocolate color), so it should be buffed afterward. I know the shine and look of a wax all boils down to the polish, but this wax gave an awesome finish and I really believe it added a lot more wetness to the paint.
Migliore Primo is most certainly different than any wax I've used so far, and I've used a lot of them.
