    Tech wax vs Stage 3

    right, the other day i went on a bit of a spending spree and ended up with some tech wax, but today i poppsed back and they've got the stage 3 carnuba wax. Shall i keep the tech wax or go back and swap?
    Which is better, which is easier to use and which is more durable?

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Have you got the proper tech wax, or just the spray on top-up stuff?

    Not used the tech wax before but stage 3 is pretty easy to apply and remove, however after getting Poorboys natty paste wax last week, i'd never go back to Meg's stuff again TBH.

    Yup thats the stuff.

    And i was looking for the poorboys stuff, but i was on a roll in hellfrauds buying some AG stuff and got the tech wax as it was there, i planned on doing it last weekend but never bothered, so in the last week i could have ordered some anyway but nevermind. And yeah it's the proper stuff, not the spray on.

    iiwy i'd take it back and get the stage3. i have the tech wax and the spray wax and the spray is good as a top up but it's the same stuff as the tech wax, just with a spray head.

    but go on www.cleanyourcar.co.uk and get some poorboy's stuff, it'll be with you within 2 working days. You won't regret it

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Between the two, I'd keep the TechWax - its actually a sealent rather than a wax, but does the same job of protecting the paint and is more durable and for me looks better than the stage 3, which is a pretty weak product IMHO especially for durability (measure it in days )

    Im keeping the tech wax, forgot i'd already peeled the seal off (well, you gotta check what it smells like ) but im really tempted to get the poorboys stuff to try out next time.

    Cheers guys.

    I was gonna start a new thread but i only have a quick question about NXT tech wax so I hope you dont mind but,

    Is it OK to just wash my car and then use tech wax? I know most people would start suggesting loads of products and techniques but I just want to know if this is OK in terms of sealing the paint, or should I be using something else afterwards?
