    Waxing my Astra which colour wax?

    Hi, I have an Astra H 1.6 04 paint code 4CU which according to the paint codes on this forum is Ultra blue.

    Which wax would I be better getting out of these two:
    Medium Blue:

    Or Dark Blue:


    Or others?

    I am thinking the darker blue, but just wondered if any other users of the forum with the same paint code have any advice. For those not familiure with the paint code, this is what the car looks like:



    Thanks

    Yes anything that isn't T-Cut. Good wax will be more expensive than those, but be 500% better.

    Collinite 476 - very durable, very cheap - About £12 - £14 IIRC

    poorboys Natty blue paste - A cheap wax, looks ok but doesn't last that long before it needs reapplying, about £12

    Petes 53 - Will give a better finish than the Collnite, but will need applying more often, once every 3-4 weeks - About £20

    Dodo Juice Blue Velvet, looks great should last at least 4 weeks though I apply it every 1-2 weeks, around £30 -£35

    can recommend the DoDo Juice Blue Velvet. I used it on my Polar Sea Blue Astra and was well impressed.
    No longer an astra owner

    Thanks guys for all of your suggestions. It looks like dodojuice is pretty highly recommended.

    Thanks again, have a good weekend.

    Another vote for DoDo juice, I used to use P21, But the DoDo is worth the extra couple of quid and from my experience seems to last longer.
