Thanks every one!
As per your question the swissvax shine lasts for 2-3 months while the cheaper waxes tend to fade away after a few days so it is worth the extra $$'s

try Collinite IW845; about 15 bux a bottle and lasts FOREVER; seriously like 6 months and feels like glass. I'm addicted to a slick feeling paint, and it really is Amazing and I leave my car outside.

It does look great, but the best waxes are always a compromise in longevity. Just curious as it's hot as shit down here, do you put the top down alot?

Thanks man, I will try Collinite next time, I have been using swissvax blau weiss since I got my car and it is an amazing wax but very expensive, after I run out of it tried a few cheap ones and the wax doesnt last more than a few days, same as you I am addicted to a slick feeling paint .Read some good reviews on this Lusso wax, lets see how it goes
As per the top I only put it down in the afternoons when the temp drops down though it is getting cooler now

i have used this wax and for the money it goes a long way. As OP stated higher concentration wax will outlast. I hate sayiing this statement and sound retarded but it's appropriate in this case. You get what you pay for. :-)
Swisvax is more $$ and it's a better product. By any means Lusso is not a cheap wax, it's a great wax IMHO.

Wow this looks great. This reminds me of how good Jerez black can really look when cared for properly. I can't wait to get my car back.

Awesome. As a passionate detailer you have done a great job.

I have Collinite 476s and use it only for winter. It will not produce deep gloss and shine like lusso oro but it's main purpose is for durability. It's all about what you are looking for.

I don't use 476 at all; IW 845 is the best IMO. And yes, you will forgo a little bit of gloss for a helluva lot of durability. My car is Jet black and looks unreal w/ it.
