I have read a few threads but would like feedback from you about what you do to prepare for the bad weather ahead. The temp dropped dramatically Sat-Sun so thought about this then. I have a Metro Blue estate if there are any specific products you recommend.

I'd recommend a few coats of Collinite wax for winter - already given mine 3 coats in the last week ready for Trax, and will be topping up over the coming month

have only tried 476s dont think theres much in any of them when deciding according to colour of car. 845 is a liquid, 746 & 915 are both a hard wax i believe. think 746 is the cheapest also and is said to last slightly longer but that debateable as the prep makes all the difference.

476s would be mine but any of the colli's for winter which then get swapped for a proper wax which gives better looks for summer. the beading is superb from 746s to be honest beats most other waxes out there but with this you sacrifice looks slightly. Sheeting is mint too helps cleaning and especially drying

On darker cars I always recommend Victoria Concours. Finish wise its fantastic, and unlike many waxes that give a nice glossy finish, its durable too. Easily durable enough to use through the winter months.
