Has anyone heard of Nubawax's Naviwax Ioncoat?



Released in 2009 in the UK, it has been gaining slow reputation as a very good (and much more affordable) car wax. It is actually a Japanese car wax but marketed in UK and Europe.

Reviews on this was has been very good. People commenting their car look very wet/slick and long lasting. Is this an underrated car wax?

Some reviews:

Just in case anyone is interested:

You get purchase this online at motorwayshop.co.uk, and they ship to Malaysia too -- about RM280 including shipping.

Hot tip: if you have a US credit card, order from them via Amazon.com. Amazon will not allow this product to ship outside the US. Never mind. Have it ship to your billing address in US, then quickly contact motorwayshop.co.uk for them to ship to Malaysia. They will accept this. The total price? RM220!

Ebay also sells this but only for Dark colored cars and for at least 2 or 4 cans. Cheaper too per can. Worth it if you really like this.

I have tried other sites that sells this wax but they do not ship overseas.

Uhm, nothing about for winter protection in any of the reviews I have read and youtube videos I have seen.

Tried a search in Google, and *all* the sites didn't want to ship to Malaysia, only those I have mentioned. Strangely, the main company has a Facebook and site but no online shopping! They list stockists but none in Malaysia.

Getting it from a friend of a friend. Still new but a "little" used. He swiped his fingers over the wax once to feel the wax. No need to pay if not happy with wax! But only getting it in April. sad.gif

Can let you test with you if I buy it.

What bro. g88 meant, is if from overseas in colder places, the wax may not be meant for our hot weather. Even DG105 now have tropical formula..... smile_tongue.gif
