Our Top 7 Best Car Wax gives you the most direct and easy to understand list of the best waxes that will give you more shine for more time.auto finesse spirit car wax

As with all waxes, it is worth spending the time to ensure your paint is prepared properly.

A wax can only protect the paint, they can’t remove dirt or scratches so if your paint isn’t looking its best we advise rectifying it first.

This involves a thorough clean, decontamination using a clay bar and the use of a pre-wax cleaner to ensure the paint is perfectly clean; your hard work will be paid off with better shine and durability!

Once the paint is looking great, choose one of our top 7 best wax for cars to protect your paint and add great shine!

Even those who aren’t professional detailers will enjoy using their products due to the main benefits of ease of use, quality and effectiveness. In short, great results in little time.

They have a great pre-wax cleaner that will clean & condition your paint prior to the wax application and further improve the gloss and finish.

5. Dodo Juice Supernatural

dodo juice supernatural best car waxWe Like: Crystal Clear Clarity

We Rate: 8.5/10

We Say: Dodo Juice offer an extensive range of car care products but they initially started with a range of colour-charged waxes. These quickly made an impression in the car care industry for their quality, effectiveness and great value.

Dodo Juice quickly grew and found a need for more products and improved quality. This is where the Supernatural range was developed.

The supernatural range was designed to compliment their original range with a range of premium products known for their purity & effectiveness.

Dodo Juice Supernatural Wax is one of their best quality car waxes with its pure wax free of colours or any additives, all done to produce their longest lasting, highest gloss wax yet. As with all high carnauba content car wax, it gets a little harder to use but this Supernatural wax makes it very easy to apply and even if left to cure for extended periods of time, will remove effortlessly.

4. Autoglym HD Wax

autoglym hd car wax best for carsWe Like: Lasting Shine, Complimented Product Range

We Rate: 8.8/10

We Say: Autoglym has been around for many years, and things don’t stay around that long for no reason. The whole range of Autoglym products are designed to give results efficiently and reliably and our experience delivering professional valeting services we can vouch for that.

However, they have always lacked a premium range and never had a paste wax, until now. Some people were sceptical once released, but the results gave the product a good name very quickly.

It comes in a very well packaged box, complete with a microfibre towel and two wax applicators. The applicators are made of very soft sponge which when wet, allows very easy application of the Autoglym HD wax. Several minutes later, the wax is removed with ease and leaves a very glossy, warm & radiant glow. It further sets itself apart by, unlike most other waxes, retains its shine and good looks for weeks.

It obviously recommends using their own shampoo to keep it looking its best, and we kind of agree, but Auto Finesse Lather does a slightly better job and as it is a pure shampoo it won’t hamper the results of the HD wax in the slightest and is also completely safe for wax and sealants so it won’t degrade it in anyway and you can reap the benefits of its durability.

It suits most colours and can obviously be used on any paint, but try this on a black, red, yellow or blue colour car and you will find the shine hard to walk away from!

3. Collinite 915 Marque D Elegance

collinite 915 wax for cars bestWe Like: Premium Car Wax, Amazing Value

We Rate: 8.9/10

We Say: Just like its older brother, 476S, Collinite have made another fantastic car wax, one of the best car wax you will find between a broad price range. It will stand up against the more expensive and fancier waxes from Switzerland, it will outlast & will outshine big name brands and all for less than any of the competitors.

It is very similar to Collinite 476S but with a subtle, very important change..more Carnauba. Carnauba wax is one of the hardest, glossiest natural substances found in the car care industry, simply used for its durability and impressive water-shedding properties.

However, rather than shedding water from a plant, put the Carnauba on a car and you get incredible shine that lasts for ages. And Collinite 915 Marque D Elegance is one of the best car waxes for displaying the benefits of a quality Carnauba Wax.

Just like 476S it is applied very easily and any quality wax applicator will allow a thin, even film that is buffed off with minimal effort with a microfibre towel.

The application of another coat of Collinite 915, just like any other wax, is highly recommended to ensure total coverage but also to amplify the shine and increase the protective benefits. This will make your car shine like no other and is well worth the money! Get one today to make your car stand out!

2. Auto Finesse Spirit

auto finesse spirit wax for carsWe Like: Incredible Shine, Beading & Smell!

We Rate: 9/10

We Say: Great performance premium wax for special vehicles.

We use Auto Finesse Spirit on nearly all our professional valeting and detailing services for its easy use but equally easy to obtain shine. We only use products that we can rely on and Auto Finesse Spirit gives us peace of mind as we know that after applying this to a customers car they will be left with a high gloss shine that repels dirt and water with ease for weeks.

This wax is great on its own but if used after an application of Auto Finesse Tripple car polish, it will take the shine to an even higher level and make your paint really stand out.

We have always got great results on nearly all colours but love the finish it gives on metallic greys, warm colours, dark colours and even silvers. It leaves a finish that is sharp, glossy & evidently gives a wet look finish.

You can apply this car wax one panel at a time or to larger sections before buffing, but from experience it is best to apply to just one panel before lightly buffing to a high gloss, smear-free finish only a few minutes later.

Simply wash with their shampoo and top up with their quick detailer for stress-free showroom shine.

Your car will shine like never before, try it today and let us know what you think!

1. Collinite 476S Car Wax

collinite 476s best wax for carsWe Like: Unbeatable Value & 12 Month Durability

We Rate: 9.2/10

We Say: Collinite is renowned world-wide for their waxes and it is easy to why when you use it for the first time. The wax itself doesn’t have a great fruity smell like most of the others in this top 7 best car wax list, but makes up for it with the performance of a world-class wax. The wax itself spreads very easily and with a damp sponge, or microfibre applicator, is very economical in use.

Even if you disregard the price and bought it at 3x the current cost (around £20) it would still be an incredible wax and good value for money. However, the main benefit of all collinite waxes are their durability.

This wax will pay off your hard work come rain or shine, with fantastic gloss or beautifully tight water droplets, which just roll of the paint..and keep on rolling off the paint for weeks. A lot of other waxes can bead like this Collinite 476S but not many can match its durability and relentless protection.

Maintaining the shine is a simple process, just wash the waxed paintwork with quality wash tools, dry with a microfibre towel and you are done. If you feel like you can’t leave it alone then using a quick detailer, like Auto Finesse Finale which contains Carnauba, will help lift the shine and prolong its life for many weeks, if not months, more.

Highly recommended and a great wax for all cars, colours and ages.

    if 3. Collinite 915 Marque D Elegance is rated 9/10
    how is Auto Finesse Spirit come second when you rate it 8.9/10 ???

  2. admin

    Thanks for notifying us James, was a minor editorial mistake, the Auto Finesse wax is meant to be 9/10 and deserves it due to its much more pleasing aroma over the petrol smelling Collinite! Have you had a chance to use any of these waxes yet? Thanks Tom

    Hi, Did you guys test FinishKare 1000P Hi-Temp Paste Wax? I was suprised not to see it on the list.

    I use it all the time on my own and other people’s cars when I wax it, and although it doesnt have an aromatic smell or anything like that. It’s very easy to apply, cure time is quite short and buffs off easily. the deep gloss it leaves it amazing, water beading is excellent too.

    But what trumps all of the above listed wax is it’s durability. I get at least 3 months out of it… I was suprised not to see it on the list when all the other waxes you mentioned on give weeks of protection compared to 3+ months of this one. Oh and it’s very cheap too, i think i got mine for £17 at the time for a 412g tin.

    Would be quite interested to see how you guys rate it compared to the ones you’ve already tested.

    Thanks.

    Hi Foyaz, thanks for visiting the site! Yes we have used FK1000P, durability is good but Collinite and Auto Finesse will last longer in most circumstances as we’ve had around 6 months from Collinite.

    However the main reason it’s not on this list is that it’s actually a synthetic sealant and not a wax. It’s one of the only sealants which is a paste and not a liquid but it’s what makes it so good and why it lasts so long (and why it smells of petrol!).

    Thanks for contacting us and we hope you keep your car shiny!

    Regards Tom @ All That Gleams

    I’m not sure what the difference is between COLLINITE 476S CAR WAX and COLLINITE 915 MARQUE D ELEGANCE; you seem to say the 915 has more carnauba wax, which I would have thought would have been better but it gets 8.9 / 10. Whereas the 476S gets 9.2 / 10. I think you’re saying the 476S lasts longer. Is this basically why it scores higher? I want the best wax to protect & shine my cherished Ltd Edition car (MX5). I’m new to all this stuff. Can you advise further? Many thanks, Gail

  6. admin

    Hi Gail, thank you for visiting the site! Collinite 476S is a slightly more durable wax and will look great on lighter colour cars. Collinite 915 does have a slightly higher carnauba content so will give more ‘warmth’ to primary colours like red, yellow, blue and black.

    It is hard to give advice for an overall best wax due to the variety of applications they are used but will be adding more reviews soon to make it more specific for your car.

    However, for now, ensure the car is properly cleaned, decontaminated using a clay bar/mitt and polished then apply either of the top waxes listed.

    It’s also worth mentioning that these are some of the best waxes but will also be worth considering using a synthetic wax (known as a sealant) which will generally give the best durability but slightly less warm gloss. Click on one of the waxes and search for ‘FinishKare 1000P’ it’s a phenomenal sealant which I guarantee won’t disappoint!

    Since in1983 I have tried various waxes, Blue Coral. Simoniz Liquid DIamond, Turtle wax. Blue Coral, Autoglym, Navi Wax. Zymol, High Gloss, Cylco Industries, Bilt Hamber, Valvoline,Simoniz GT seedwax Arexions Car wax. to mane a few. I have bought some from the £1 shop and then specialist from Japan, and USA. I have to say the best wax I have ever tried and people have commented on is Rain Dance by DuPont. No other wax comes close. It is the best was period! at about £6 in 1985 G

    All replys interesting, but is there a polish that does not leave the trim white???

  11. john

    Is there a polish that does not leave the plastic surrounds white that is almost un removable.

  12. admin

    Hi John, thank you for your comment, if you mean wax then yes a very good wax which doesn’t leave the trim white is Meguiars Ultimate Liquid (or paste) Wax, you can even use it to protect trim!

  13. Gavin

    Is farcela wax any good?

  14. admin

    Hi Gavin, the Farecla G3 Wax is an average wax, it’s very easy to apply and remove but it comprimises ease of use with a fairly short durability. We haven’t got more than a couple of weeks Protection so would personally recommended something like Autoglym HD instead; little more pricey but will pay back with great protection and months of durability.
