    This has to be one the best posts here. Definitely saved as a favourite!

    What would make it better, is if everyone edited their post to include what they have used in each category (or what they haven't, which ever is shorter lol)

    That way it's a more accurate reflection on the products, and peoples experience with them.

          It's interesting. Zymol is a product that is billed as being 'prestige' and 'the upper class' product yet I'm yet to see anyone (other than you of course mate) who rates it as a decent product. Surely, however, it wouldn't have earned the name it has unless it was decent stuff? If it IS that decent, why do so few people here use it? Is it the price?

          Glasur and Concours represent great value. Looks are top drawer, beading and sheeting is excellent, dirt repellency is excellent, durability is good, they load on the applicator easily, they spread easily and buff off easily. Basically, all the boxes get ticked. You might get waxes that match it in most areas but miss out on one or two areas. Some people say they don't like Zymol's gassing, but I have not experienced this. Maybe I'm lucky.
          Never tried Glasur, but still have Concours. The gassing certainly was the bane of my life with Concours, which is why I moved to Fuzion. Don't get me wrong. I still have a soft spot for Zymol products, but I seem to have moved away from the typical beading product to ones that have more sheeting properties like CQ and more recently OC 2.0. I guess as much as I LOVE detailing my car, I'm looking for easier ways to keep it looking great for longer, especially as my car doesn't get cover in my driveway.

          Having said all that, I'm always wondering what HD Cleanse and Concours would look like on my metallic black A4 compared to the flat black on my previous Saab 93. Cos the combo on flat black was fairly breathtaking.

                            The thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, early in the morning or late at night. The thing you read about, write about, think about, fantasize about. that thing you do alone and theres no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. Thats it, thats your thing, thats your heart , your guide, Thats the thing you must, must do.

                                theres a couple of soft 99 products listed included premimum authentic and King of Gloss. I was lucky enough to pick it up as part of Dominos recent clearance sale. It would have to have be an online purchase Im guessing given none of the site sponsors carry it. Perhaps PM domino.
