Excellent wax, durability is questionable
I just applied Pete's 53 paste wax after claying the entire car and applying Jetseal. My paint is in really good condition so I thought I'd try something different. Up until now I used Meguiar's ultimate liquid wax which is a hybrid carnuba/synthetic sealant. While the Meguiar provides excellent water beading and sealing properties, the car missed a certain degree of gloss and depth. So I decided to try Chemical Guys given that they are a very reputable brand. Initially when I applied Pete's 53 my car looked amazing in terms of depth and gloss. The problem is in Toronto we've had quite a bit of rain this summer and this wax doesn't appear to last as long as it should. If you live in a climate where it rains a lot you may get a month out of it. The car still looks great and retains that glossy deep wax appearance but after 2 weeks it's definitely less pronounced. Not to say anything bad about it, it smells great and gives an amazing shine. Just don't expect it to last too long. This is an issue with all carnuba-based waxes but some do last longer than others.
ProsMakes white colour looks glossy, wet, and adds much needed depth
ConsDoes not last particularly long, especially in wet climates
Just great !
I have not used anything that is as easy to apply and remove. Fantastic shine and good depth perception. Highly recommend . Rain beads up as little droplets. Apply thin coat for best results.
ProsIncludes 2 applicator pads

Boutique Wax
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.
ProsShow car shine

ProsEasy to apply when warm wipes off easy.
ConsWarm up the wax for an easier application.

Sparkle on Car.....with Petes
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.
ProsI 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.
