What will give me the best results and durability?
Having done my car many, many times with Blitz, I can tell you that it is very easy and quick to use. However, the depth of shine and gloss from Griot's Best of Show with the PC is in my opinion superior to Blitz. In all fairness, however, I hadn't clayed and polished before Blitz but did use Mequiars Show Car Glaze 7 before a Blitz job once. I was always satisfied with Blitz until I did the PC Griot's thing. Not that I'd be dissatisfied now, I just think the Blitz is not as rich a shine. However, the PC Griot's job took 6 hours, wash included and I can knock of a Blitz wax in 45 min. on a clean car.Ripsnort said:That's about what Griots lasts. P21S gives an amazing wet look shine, but I found it only lasts about 3 months. I've heard nothing but good feedback at Autopia in regards to Blitz.
Folks here in the Pacific Northwest don't know how good they got it...coming from the Midwest (Minn) where a helmut law wouldn't have to be enforced due to the fact that you'd be blinded by bugs anytime the weather gets above 45 deg. if you didn't wear a helmut!...well, I have relatives that come to visit, after a few days, they get a sense that 'something is missing out here, what is it?'..."Bugs?" I ask..."Yes! thats it! where are the bugs!?"hillbilly bimme said:Got to clean the front of your car often this time of year those East Tennessee bugs will eat the paint off if you don't.
The bugs around are can be a major PITA. They love xenons, but I usually don't go anywhere at night and if I do I just drive my 525i.hillbilly bimme said:It was still 80 degrees at 9:30. Looks like summer is here. I have used Imperial hand glaze and both Blitz and P21S. Both are great products, Blitz lasts a little longer, but P21S shines a little better.

Well, I had it pretty thin by the removal stage and I thought it was more difficult to remove than Blitz. I leave the Blitz on for at least 15 min. and then basically dust off, the white residue is the main issue. With BOS it says to remove promptly, so it's still a bit wet. I had to use and turn a couple of cloths to remove and then use a clean cotton cloth to buff. But BOS leaves no chalk residue.Ripsnort said:I thought Griots BOS wax was a PITA to remove, but it was the operator, not the product (I put it on too thick by hand the first time I tried it)
There aren't too many waxes easier to use than Blitz. Only the easiest of waxes apply and buff easier than Blitz. A few that come to mind are Pinnacle Souveran and Paste Glaze. Also, I hear P21S is just as easy as the Pinnacle waxes.Sean said:
