    Wax or Sealant

    Wax or Sealant?

    Which is the best product to use for long lasting protection and costing no more than £15.

    Wax I would say, as far as I am aware, sealant is used after polishing, but before wax, although I might be wrong!


    Not sure on prices of decent waxes, I know Petes 53 which I use on black costs about £22 a pot but the quality of it is supreme.

    go wax mate, sealant is usually used after polishing i beleve. wax protects the paint.

    Depends on what you want really. They're both LSPs ateotd. Sealants give better finishes on lighter coloured cars, zaino z2pro is the best to use. Waxes give better finishes on darker cars and also last longer in terms of protection. XXX is a good wax mate, yes.

    No longer owns an Astra


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