    How much are you willing to spend on wax?

    You get what you pay for. Obviously, cheap waxes have cheap ingredients. I don't have a problem spending $30 - $40, but how much better are $60, or even $100 waxes?

    And what is the deal with the $500 waxes?!? Are the ingredients really that much better? Then there's the $1000 waxes! ###?!?! For that kinda money, I want a bikini clad hottie to pop out of the can and wax more than my car!!

    Re: How much are you willing to spend on wax?

    I use Fuzion but to date I've only bought the sample size. I like the look it gives on my Belize Blue Honda

    The most expensive wax I've bought is Souveran. Yes it's worth it to me because it's a pleasure to use and looks spectacular on all colors I've tried. Of course it would be nice if it lasted long.

    I don't think I've ever spent over $20.00-$30.00 (in today's dollars) on any wax, anytime in my life. And with those $20 waxes/polishes/glazes I have won multiple "best paint" and "best in show" awards. Not my own cars, but rather cars that I have painted.

    You can win shows ( as I have) with Souveran too. I wish there were more around here to participate in.

    •Two of my favorite ‘Waxes’ cost only:
    -$17.99 for 15 oz. (paste)
    -$18.99 for 16oz. (liquid)


    •I only ever consider buying the
    high-priced stuff (~$40-50) if it’s
    on AGO’s Clearance Rack.

    Re: How much are you willing to spend on wax?

    Yea...... I have spent a lot on waxes. Are the big dollar ones that much better????? Only if you are happy with your purchase. Is a 500$ wax 10x better than a 50$ wax.... absolutely not.

    Re: How much are you willing to spend on wax?

    I have a pot of Dodo Juice Blue Velvet that I bought about 12 years ago for $95, I'm only about half way through it. That's Australian dollars, so the exchange rate can vary. It still goes on well, and seems to last. It works well on my Mum's Dark Blue Qashqai.

    $55ish for Dodo Juice Orange Crush. Worth the money for the look in my opinion. But that's on my garaged, non daily driver Camaro. I'll try Dodo Scarlet Fever when this runs out. But that's the limit.

    Daily Driver's get either Collinite 845 or Finish Kare 1000P. Both inexpensive.

    I took advantage of the recent AG 40% off sale on Pinnacle to pick up a jar of Souveran.

    Whatever the going price is for a can of Collnite 476s or a bottle of 845.........
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
