do you think he charges by the square foot of surface area on the car. the 1er may be affordable compared to a big lambo or veyron

P21S is good, but it doesn't last long enough.

P21S is really easy to apply and remove too.

I think Zymol is the best overall, expensive, but the shine lasts for a long time.

I did a layer of Zymol then P21S and it looked awesome!

I have been using Collinite Marque D'Elegance (No. 915) for years now. Used to work for a detailing shop and found this protected the car well and gave it a great shine. Have always gotten many compliments on my cars and to what wax I use.

When it comes to waxing, I usually go with poetic or nostalgic.

On the same note, I have tried Pinnacle Souveran carnuba paste wax with incredible results, but I prep with a bunch of different Griots products, and maintain shine with Griots Speed Shine. That stuff is God's gift to the quick detailing world.

I have used Collinite, many years ago, and it rocked though... I kind of forgot about it.
