Expensive is always relative. Swizöl’s “Divine” wax is specially formulated for the owner’s car based on the color and the paint used and comes with a hand-engraved plaque bearing the owner’s name and the serial number, as well as a certificate of authenticity. All this for only $2,800.

The Ice products are nice!

Though the wax does not make the finish as smooth or rich, it is, as already mentioned;

- Easy to use
- FAST on and off
- Can get on plastic (will shine it and not leave marks)
- Can be put on often because it does last and doesn't take long
- Kits sometimes have the Detailer, which works great between waxes

So that might be something to keep in mind. Synthetics are also touted to handle being in the sun while your waxing because of the difference in properties (I wouldn't).

lol...not that much.

But...I'm poor...and, $14 for wax is a little pricey. Well worth it though.

Here is what I use. I am not sure what stores you can get it at, but can buy online. I think it used to becalled Formula 2 or something, then he lost the court case and name.

The owner was also a designer for Ford back in the 60s and 70s. Real nice guy and friendly. My car clubs has been to his house for demos a few times.
