    OK its not red I know but Ive just bought some Collinite 915 Marque D'Elegance from across the pond.

    Buy 2 save on postage - still works out almost half the price of UK based sellers... Took about 7days to get here.

    Haven't yet tried it but Ive heard great reports about the stuff so might be worth a shot

    915 is not too bad. I used Dodo's Doublewax on my red VXR and it gave fantastic results, but at £80, not cheap. Same as Swissvax Saphir that I used on a red Saab at £70. For around £30 you can get Dodo's Orange Crush which will give good results. or at £20, you have Pete's 53 which is a stunning wax.

    Remember though that the key is in the preparation. Clay the car, then use a good paint cleaner such as Zymol HD Cleanse or Dodo Juice Lime Prime. Add your wax and you'll be amazed at the results.

    915 is good, but not too sure how well it will fare with red. Orange crush has bee designed for warm colours so the results will be awe inspiring on red.
