Show car boutique wax thats easy to apply and remove with a pleasant scent.This along with Collinite 915 Marque D'Elegance are proper carnauba paste waxes designed to make you stand back and look in amazement at your finished paint that oozes depth and wetness. I must say Autogeek really has a phenomenal range of superb waxes and sealants and have eliminated the ho hum mediocre stuff.

Warm the wax up a bit it makes it easier to apply with a microfiber applicator. Wax goes on easy gives a nice shine, don't know about the durability.
Easy to apply when warm wipes off easy.
Warm up the wax for an easier application.

Sparkle on Car.....with Petes
May 26, 2014
This wax from Chemical Guys was one sale, a good price. I forget how much, but I am a person who will buy and try car detailing products if the price is good. But I will pay for the stuff I know is tried and true. With Pete's, pushed aside my tin of Mothers California Gold Wax (tried and true in my books for years) and opted for Pete's. Well I was so happy with the results. The depth and color Pete's did with the car was amazing, like you could "jump into the paint and go for a swim". I was impressed by how the wax brought out the metal flake in the pain. A buddy of mine, who has more experience in the detailing world as he has done it commercially, but has gone on to other things, bought a Mazda 3 Sport, with a color of 'spicy orange', the paint was in need. So being a dear friend, I handed him my jar of Pete's and said, try this. Well, he loved the look, he was impressed. Even the cop said something when he got pulled over for speeding. So it is a good product.
I think its a good price, even at normal retail as Mothers California Gold tin is $25+ (here in Canada). Easy application. Apply evenly and not too thick (like any other product), this product wipes off nicely. I think you get a good amount of product for the price. Been three years, about 3 applications a year, and still have little over half a jar.

This wax is now my best favorite wax! Truly easier than any other on/off wax 8 have ever tried. I just can' t believe how easy and I don't have to get out the buffer. Not only that, but I can't believe how good it looks for such any easy wax to use. Waxed the car in less about half hour and this wax seems to look better than any other wax I've tried. Seems to make the car shine a little more than any other wax, plus no haze at all.

I have used almost every high end wax and sealant on my 2012 Mint Volkswagon sport wagon show car. There were any great product, but not made my finish so clear, impart a wet shine. My other show cars also look fantastic. This products produces for me, what I wanted the $100.00 plus wax did not do. Living year round in southwest Florida, this product really stands up.

Great for silver

I used Pete's 53 for the 1st time on my silver BMW Z3 and I have never seen it look so silky, wet and glossy. It s a little tricky to spread compared to WG Fusion, but buffs off very easily. Great wax at a fair price.
