Just seen the price of Vintage...just under £114 for 200gm...and The Rock wax by Scholl..just under £88 for 200gm.

As I have never used other expensive waxes....I have no idea if Vintage is good value or not?

I did a 50/50 bonnet test with Vintage today....someone commented that the Vintage waxed side looked 'deeper' and glossier compared to RG55!

But I know exactly what you mean...expensive,,,,but could be a great Birthday present :D (Remind me to hint to my brother later this year!) :lol:

it will be good value and does look the dogs danglies but with very little info on the contents I can see them having trouble selling a great....I will be revisiting the Jag later in the week for a wash because of its motorway journeys and will get some beading pics from it....

You're right about bare hand application being a bit of a faff. TBH, application was pretty easy even on a cold panel. Removal took a couple of towels, even on a small panel.

Still, it looks pretty good - if it had sat out into the sun for even a short while I reckon it would have looked a lot better:

Paul....the quality of your polishing really does that wax justice :D

looking at the reflection of the trees...the colour of the branches on the panel is just a little darker/richer than the actual tree itself....but remains crisp and no sign of 'distortion'.

Given that it's over the £100 mark for 200gm...an expensive wax by any standards.....

Is there a noticable difference to another wax around the £50 or £70 mark?
Does the extra effort in buffing, justify the end result?
Does it have that elusive 'wow' factor?

and now the important question...

Is it worth the money?

Application is (presently) not a lot of fun. Removal is straightforward, but does need some care. The look is excellent; deep, crisp and sumptuous.

When I bought Swissvax Best of Show (£130 or so then ... now, somewhere shy of £200!) I was very happy. I had used the wax before, knew how to use it and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Dodo Juice Supernatural in a wooden pot at £95 was a wax I was very happy with, too. Application, removal and looks is all important, as is pleasure of ownership.

I think for most people, it would certainly not be worth the money. There are many waxes which come very close and can be had for £30-£40. That little bit extra is much like fine wine - there's little tangible in it, but if the taster can taste that it is a fine wine, it's worth it. I'd like to see a retail pot. I'll reserve judgement.

That's quite some water sheeting capability....almost like permanon...but faster. Makes drying the car so much easier and quicker....let alone the 'look' it achieves. :D

Thanks for posting that video Russ.

I've sent a sample of Vintage, onew which is on sale now, to another forum member for testing on his white car...as so far only reports on dark colours have been reported.

Could well prove to be an interesting read. :?:

It certainly produces fantastic reflection bending with a deep rich gloss results..and with only one application. Scholl recommend their SW40 spray wax as a top up for Vintage...it certainly adds a lot of 'wet show car finish'.

As for the 'crumbly' effect which Paul mentioned when he took it out of the sample pot...there is no sign of this at all from the 200gm container. It's also a lot softer in the pot, than the pre-production sample I first tested.

There's a certain crumbliness to sample pots given that they are often spooned/cut from a larger block. The trick is to smooth it down with some body heat and then you can determine the texture. It does sound like the final product has been fully smoothed. Very nice.

I'm inclined to give the remainder that I have another outting this weekend. Sunday is a good day - cold, but sunny.
