Talking waxed the car, new favorite wax *pics*

its called S100 and you can pick it up at Harley Davidson Dealerships it goes on like butter and comes off just as easily.. its actually a German Wax called PS201 or something like that, and was rated tops by a recent wax survey thing, but Harley Dealers repackage it as S100 and sell it for half the price (all this info is from a professional dealtailer)

anyway, i used it after washing and drying the wrx today, and buffed the wax off with microfiber towels, first time using those too.. it was a breaze.

anyway.. here are the pictures.. it was late when i took them so they didnt' turn out great, but you get the idea.

from another forum..

Quote:
Guru Reports recently tested 46 different waxes and only one got an 'A' for appearance. Not Meguiars, not Pinnacle, not Zymol and not Zainos (all got B to B+ scores). The wax that was top in appearance was P21S, a German wax developed by the same guy who developed Pinnacle Souveran (which runs $69.99 for 8 oz). P21S normally goes for $24.95 through high end automotive shops and on line car care outlets.

The dirty little secret is that the same exact wax is sold at Harley-Davidson dealers under the name S100 for $14.95. The wax is the same, the container is the same except for the name of the product. The only reason I can think of it being cheaper is that one container could probably wax a bike more than 50 times, so the average bike owner would never come close to using a whole jar of it and probably wouldn't pay full price for something they will never use all of.

The Harley dealers also sell the S100 paint cleanser which is a real good light polish. The cutting power seems to be between Meguiars Swirl Remover 2.0 and Show Car Glaze. That runs about $8.95, a dollar less than the P21S paint cleanser.
take that how you will
