I tried using Collinite 845 during the weekend on the top of Meguiar's NXT 2.0 (done last weekend) on few panels the outcome was stunning.

On few panels I tried applying collite 845 without the NXT 2.0 topping and the result was not that great. Of course I had done the cleaning, claying etc before applying collinite.

In my opinion collinite is the best wax I have seen so far. You can see that it just wax dissolved in some liquid. Prior to trying collinite and NXT 2.0 I had used 3M wax and it was not that great when compared to NXT 2.0 or collinite 845. NXT 2.0 definitely gives more shine and lasts for 3 weeks in chennai. After 3 weeks the water streaking is not that Now that I have topped NXT 2.0 with collinite 845 will have to see how long the durability gets extended.

I did not do the half bonnet thing but I have some pics of the car bonnet 4 weeks after "Turtle wax Super Hard Shell" here Most durable wax I have encountered - Collinite 845-p1010413.jpg

Waiting for details from Sanjay for order confirmation.

After browsing for information on the internet and looking at the proof by fellow bhpians going for it

I have bought products from BBI and auto-mall and I feel the price are on the higher side from BBI.

I would recommend auto-mall instead, prompt service and right pricing.

Default Re: Most durable wax I have encountered - Collinite 845

I'm contemplating on ordering a few car products from BB Impex so wanted some advice. How is Collinite 840 Pre wax, is it really helpful and has any BHPian used it? And how is Carrand gripper, is it really helpful in waxing the car?

Below is the list of products I'm intending of ordering from BB Impex.
Collinite 915, Marque D` Elegance
5 pack yellow micro fiber Size 16 X 16 Inch
Carrand 5 inch Microfiber & Terry Pads with Gripper(White Color)
Collinite 840 Prewax Cleaner
MicroFiber 4 Piece Set

This question might sound stupid but still I'm asking. Whats the difference between waxing and polishing?
What I do normally first wash the car, make it dry, if necessary clay it and then apply Formula 1 Carnuaba wax liquid. Thats it. Is there anything I'm missing out. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Collinite 840 is not recommended by Collinite for Dark colored cars. It might be dangerous for paint color. As per collinite they are working on clear coat safe cleaners. And this should be used by detailer and they normally dont recommend to common customers to use it as cleaners.

Is there any place in Bangalore where I can pick up a bottle of Collinite 845 instead of online ordering?

(Never mind, I found it - Automall!).

Suresh.
You may check out the automall shop in Jeevan Bhima Nagar main road (10th main) above the corp-bank ATM.
Anyway i stay very close to that place and intend to visit it today or over the weekend to see whether they stock the products there itself. I will let you know.

Here is how the 915 looks.
Hi Captain

Would you be able to help me with the location of this Automall. Any pointers would be of great help

Googling hasn't helped in this case

Thanks
