    No, haven't tried it so can't comment. I do use Dodo Supernatural Hybrid on the wife's car and that's still beading water after 3 months.
    Gives me more time to pamper the VR.

    Inbetween washes I top it up with Dodo Juice Red Tropical mist spray which keeps it looking good longer.

    I used to use the red mist but never liked the tropical version. It always seemed to leave a stain.

    What’s everyone’s opinion on polishes and waxes ?, are they really all they are cracked up to be ?. What I’m trying to get at , is in my day turtle wax was king , then along came Mer etc . Christ I remember using Mer on my MK 1 Zodiac



    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    I have always found Meguiars products to give good results and good value, though my favourite product lately is Auto Finnesse Glisten, addicted to it !

    Hopefully this weekend I will use the Fusion . According to the distructions , you have to apply one coat and leave for ten minutes, then apply another and leave it for an hour before buffing it off .

    Thanks harrier.. how long does the blue velvet or blue velvet pro last... im torn between this product and the dodo juice supernatural hybrid which is a general wax and sealer for general cars last 4 - 6 months... im not into to waxing a car too often...

    Do you use the lime primer before or put the wax on top of the polished surface.

    My favourite for look is Chemical Guys Petes 53 paste wax. The wet look is incredible, but it doesn't last all that long.
    For longevity, I use Collinite 476s, or Bilt Hamber Double speed wax. Both look great and last too.
