Not worth the money IMHO.

Got mine on this past weekend, Can't beat the newer WOWA synthetic polymer sealants (better than Rejex used by many porsche owners on 6speed, which you have to wipe off). My choice is the Ultima Paint Guard.

I come from Klasse, Blackfire, Zaino, 3m products and the ease, gloss after one application and protection from crap sticking on to the paint and water beading up. You can't beat this bad boy. Takes me 10-15 minutes to apply this after a nice wash.

Haven't used Ultima or Collinite, worth it? I usually use Zaino, poor boys, or megs on my details with good results.

Not a fan of sealants.
Old school carnauba is a warmer deeper shine IMHO If you want those green flakes to pop on Brilliant Black paint, carnauba is the way to make that happen.:thumbsup:
Collinite #915 lases 6 months (for me)
If P21S lasted longer that would be my choice as I think it looks even better.

Brad, if you like them, why change? :)
If I lived that, I would not have shelves of stuff in my basement.:D

My go to carnuba for my customers cars is always chemical guys XXX Hardcore. Iv never tried a wax that clicks paint and gives depth like this stuff does.

As far as shine, carnuba is hard to beat. For ease of application and protection from the elements, newer polymer sealants are hard to beat.

How hard to buff when dry is Collinite compared to carnuba wax. I have weak arms!

You wont like it.:( It is not the worst but, it is not easy.
You are supposed to put it on very thinly. I can't bring myself to do thin.
You really are not supposed to wait until dry anyway.
BTW I am on my 2nd set of 2 Advil today so far :)
