I'm scared to buy again.
I just spent RM360 a few months ago to buy Wolfgang detailing products and I've only used it once.
If I buy another wax my wife might kill me sterb324.gif smile_big.gif


Only RM55, mah. If bought during CNY sale, can get 10% off some more. Kakaka.

I wonder why Autobacs let a single person book so many of this wax -- their entire motherload. It's either a groupbuy, for a detailing shop, or to be sold on ebay/lelong/mudah for twice the Autobacs price, easy.

Perhaps even a case of sour grapes?

Not only the whole lot, but at lower price too. Probably getting rid of it fast.... smile_wink.gif

I have been using Naviwax all this time, and it is the best wax I have used thus far. Easy to apply, lasts long, and brilliant shine. Not expensive too.

I went to Autobacs several times but noticed they no longer sell Naviwax.

But the last time I went there and I asked one of the Japanese supervisors, and in his broken English, I think he was telling me that Naviwax in Japan "no more" but now there is a replacement product by the same company Taiho:



Bought one can (200 g) for RM58+ (Japan is selling it for about RM50). Tried it on Sunday, and absolutely brilliant shine. Neighbours joked I "re-bought" a new car.

However, the new product smells less pleasant -- more like petrol. I can't read Japanese, so I don't know exactly how it should be applied. The "old" naviwax is applied by either misting the surface with water or wetting the sponge/applicator a little with water then applying the wax.

I tried the same technique with this "new" product but the wax didn't seem to stay on. At the end, I applied it dry, then wiped off almost immediately, leaving a slick, oily feel.

Gives a very nice finish though ....

I know 2 local people selling Naviwax here: one in KL and the other in the East coast.
