So, I came across a pretty good deal I think. I got a 75% full jar of Souveršn and a new jar of Rim Wax at my front door for $35.00.
I had a chance to lay down a fast coat on top of my previous wax (Glasur); as I was anxious to work with this legendary wax. First thing you do is smell it right? It smells like coconut pineapple sun tan lotion. Pretty nice. But, smell isn't really too important. Some of the most popular ones smell like chemicals ( think Collinite) or nothing at all (P21S).
The victim vehicle is my Black Sapphire Metallic BMW that has been posted here to death. This car is garage kept. It's washed every 3 to 4 weeks with a traditional 2 bucket was, and kept up in between with frequent waterless washes. Basically, if the car shows anything but the smallest amount of dirt, I clean it. Also, it's not driven if rain is even a possibility
I'm telling you all these things, because this is probably the type of car Souveršn was meant for. Longevity is one thing I won't be able to comment on, however, this car sees a new coat of wax about every 3 weeks and spray wax after every wash (currently using 1Z Spray Wax)
First, application of this wax is ridiculously easy. One swipe of the yellow foam pad coats 1/2 to 2/3 a panel. Removal is immediate and even easier than application. The only wax I've tried that has been so easy to work with is Fuzion.
I think Souveršn's ease of application contributes to its good look. It doesn't seem to haze as your spreading it (if at all). Removal is immediate, or whenever you feel loke it for that matter. Either way it comes right off. This works on your favor, especially on dark cars, as you are able to get an thin equal coat both where you start and finish on the panel. With some 'nubas this isn't the case. Some haze so fast, you end up applying it thicker where you started and thinner where you stopped. I think the ability to spread Souveršn evenly easily works in its favor. The wax seems just as thick and even across the whole panel. I also notice this with Fuzion. Also, because it spreads uniformly it seems very little is wasted or buffed off, leaving no dust. It seems like a pot of Souveršn would last longer than a pot of a comparable wax due to its ability to spread thin and even.
The day I applied this it was pretty humid. About half the time with other 'nubas, especially on a day like this, you are left with some ghosting, sweating, smearing, or hazing. Souveršn had none of this. Also, later I applied some Eco-Touch Carnuba Spray Wax just to see what happens. This took to it fine as well.
I really liked the look of Souveršn. It seemed to give the panel a very even clean deep look. Hard to explain, but seemed to look better than others. I guess that's why this wax has such a good reputation on dark colors. I can see myself using this wax frequently, as its so easy to use, why not?
Is it worth $95? Yeah, I think it is. For that amount you are getting a product that is virtually fool proof. I mean, I couldn't see anyone messing up or having a hard time with an application of
Souveršn. There are a lot of other waxes in this price range that are "finicky" in application and removal that probably don't look as good. Yeah, durability may not be great, but reapplication is close to effortless. The only thing easier would be a spray wax product. I can't see having any problem applying this over a sealant or a more durable wax. So, I like it....
The only question left is... Would it ever go on BOGO ???
