What I want is a wax that lasts long and has a nice gloss as well.
My car's colour is dark (Sea Grey).
The wax SHOULD NOT be difficult to buff off with hand as I cannot spend a lot of time Buffing it off as I do now with Waxpol because I need to study as well. It should be easy to apply thin as well.
Please help.
Please guys, I need to decide this as soon as possible.

Well, in the Collinite stable the Marque D'Elegance is the "queen bee". It is more difficult to apply and remove. But perhaps gives the best shine - due to the carnauba content. If you want to compare the 845, you should look at the 476. In terms of ease of application the 845 is a liquid and is the easiest to apply and buff. The shine is not startling but nice. Also, its focus is on protection. So in the rains you are better off with 845. Save up for the D'Elegance in the coming Winter.

Well, the clear coat is also a paint layer. On your car you may have a one stage paint (no CC) or a two stage paint (a base paint layer and a CC layer). Almost all modern cars nowadays have two stage paint. Unless you have had your car painted in a workshop, it is likely to have two stage paint. The metallic colors may have several layers of CC to make them appear more shiny.

Not true at all if it is OEM paint work.

I would say both have two stage paintwork. But Verna & Alto owners can confirm.

waw, amazing prateek.

i think all the detailing here in this thread can actually result into comprehensive user's guide book on car detailing on every aspect. maybe we should have only a thread that lists the detailing part only and the discussions on that can go into a parallel thread with respect to that main thread.

it will be much easier for anybody to learn about detailing that way and discuss as well.

who knows we will see a TBHP car detailing book on book shelves pretty soon

Prateek, that is a pro-detailers collection man...must have taken loads of effort to collect it, not to mention that must have burnt a major hole too, worth it i guess for your black beauty!
BTW update on the "orange peel effect" that vasoo reported. I had gone to get my free service done and saw a couple of cars more, black and red and ALL had that effect what is being suspected as some imperfection. In fact i happened to examine my other car closely and saw it too shows up the same. I think its not visible when the car is swirled up but working on the surface the effect shows up, which is more a reflection of the condition of the surface being great. Not sure, but my logic and practical experience says this is the best understanding.
!y free service turned out another learning experience. forgot to tell them not to wash the car and the soap oil removed the top wax layer, a few swirls came up, though can be seen only against the light. Now will wait for nirmals DA experience and then try my hand at it!!!
