Yeah I've seen this vid, over on www.autopia.com

That's just taking it a bit too far in my opinion.

I've got 8oz of the Vintage - the stuff just down from that. The guy I bought it from upgraded to Royale.

He has offered me some Royale, but its a bit more expensive. According to him tho, the biggest advantage over Vintage is durability with negligible difference in finish. So I'll just stick with Vintage...


If you think Royale is expensive check this stuff out, even comes with a golden spoon and yes that is taking it too far... :D

hehehe yes i've seen this before!!! the spoon itself is wild!!! marty i like the gloss and beading action the vintage gave so i guess if they add durability on there they can kind of justify the price.

do you feel that is the best wax you've personally used?

I do personally feel the finish is better than the Zaino it was wearing previously - especially in the sun where it melts slightly to truly wet, mile deep finish.

However, 99% of the finish comes from perfecting it through polishing and burnishing. The LSP is such a minute step really... So any decent wax from $20 could look just as good side by side to vintage/royale/solaris...

see marty you know your stuff b/c polishing and prepping the paint for the lsp is the key!!!! you nailed it bro!!! hopefully more people understand this. you can have hte most expensive wax in the world but it won't make a diff if you finish sucks!!!
