Initial Impressions: Autoglym High Definition Wax

This wax costs RM453 here in Malaysia, a freaking expensive wax that lies in the price range of entry level waxes from boutique brands such as Swissvax and Zymol. Thankfully, managed to get it at a cheaper price, thanks to the help of mankarat, a forummer on Autoworld, who recently came back from the states. But seriously, RM450??! My dad would say, “You crazy?? I could eat 3 meals a day for a month!!”. But he doesn’t know that 😛

The wax also does not behave like waxes in the cheaper price range(M16,M26,Pink Wax).

However, do they really do that? Do Wash & Wax shampoos actually add something to the finish and negate the need to wax a car?Or are they pure marketing BS? I attempt to find out to these questions by comparing several Wash & Wax and non-Wash & Wax shampoos. I also review Meguiar’s new Ultimate Wash & Wax.
