    A wax worth your time and effort.

    Just wanted to pass on to my fellow RS owners that I found a great wax that actually holds a shine and will bead water away weeks after being applied.

    Collinite 845

    Put the bottle in a bucket of hot water 20 mins before applying to liquefy the wax.

    A little goes a LONG way!

    I'll be throwing it on my RS here in a few weeks once I'm done with autocross (and have my weekends freed up for detailing). It's a great winter wax.

    Works great. A buddy of mine gave me a bottle. He said that's all they use at the dealership he works at.

    how often are you supposed to use clay bar? can you use it everytime you wash? I feel like I need too with frozen white.
    Keeping it pinned down while all cylinders are -6 is not good practice

    Money comes and goes, RS don't.
    Dude your life is also ticking away.
    Buy th damn car and mod away.

    The ST is an ST that's all it will ever be.

    Awesome wax awesome value....just need to ensure you use a THIN coat. Thick coats are a PITA to remove. But the longevity is excellent.

    Every time you wax your car you should use a clay bar first so no contaminants get sealed in under the wax.
