    I'd say between 60-80%. If you're willing to spend out, I'd recommend Swissvax Best of Show (£120odd). For a good cheaper wax I'd go with either Dodo Juice Blue Velvet or Purple Haze (£32each). Or if you want a good solid wax, that'll give a good gloss and good protection the Collinite 915 Marque D'Elegance (£22). That's be my choice for Prestige Blue mate (Besides, i thought you weren't the detailing type?)

    dont forget that most of the time the % given is % of Carunba out of the waxes, not of the total product

    Colly 476s is supposed to be quite durable, and seems to be good on dark colours

    lol the 476s seems to go for about £15 a can, although Drew managed to get 2 cans for £20 delivered off eBay.

    The new Auto Glym paste wax is quite highly recommended Geoff.
