    Turtle Waxes are better then Formula-1, I have used scratch-out so many time on my bikes but results aren't good as should be. So better avoid Formula-1 products now. Amjad whats the current price of Mothers Wax and 3M Spray?

    hehe its just a marketing gimmick... In dusty conditions like Pakistan and the quality of paint jobs here its not possible here and even abroad. they did not put a satyric on it and mention only if u park it in the garage under cover

    the product u have mentioned is an entry level polish good 4 u, but better try and purchase a synthetic one: this for eg.

    Bhai it all comes down to budget..If you can spare like 5-6k rupess(which most of the bike owners wont)..Just buy a good wax and some microfiber towels, microfiber wash mitt,,a good wax(one time investment--Turtle ice liquid wax)

    Here is how Prof auto-detailers do this stuff:

    1-Wash:Top to Bottom--ANy good auto shampoo..(Detergents are anti wax agent..They remove the already deposited wax which acts as paint protectant)

    2-Detailing clay It is a substance that is designed to remove bonded contaminatns from paint, leaving the paint smooth as glass, allowing easier and more fruitful applications of polihses, glazes, sealents and waxes. Detailing Clay is wiped gently across the paint which needs to be lubricated with a lubricant such as a Quick Detailer spray.

    3-Now there are 3 ways to go:

    For neglected Paint: Do rubbing compound polish.Then apply Swirl remover(compound polish most of the time leaves swirl marks on the finish) and finally finishing polish.

    For Moderate Imperfections:SImply apply swirl remover then finishing polish.

    GOOD Condition Paint: Juts use a Prewax cleansing Polish(removes old layers of wax and very fine imperfection)

    4-Apply Glaze:A glaze is often an optional step of the detailing process, but when used correctly can help add an additional layer of gloss and depth to the paint. Glazes are essentially polishes that leave behind oils, kaolin clay or some other substance that is designed to increase the depth and gloss while being able to mask or hide some minor imperfections in the paint.

    5-Paint sealant or Wax--or Both

    Paint Sealants were created as an alternative to natural carnauba waxes. They tried to duplicate the shine of carnauba but also offer some benefits that a natural product just can't provide. One of those benefits is longevity.The only thing they lack is the shine in carnauba waxes..But latest Paint sealants offer very eye candy shine gloss...

    Detailers Lay down a layer of paint sealant for durability.They then top it with carnaubax wax for an eye popping shine..Always apply Paint sealant first..!!

    6-SPray Wax(optional)
    Quick detail sprays, spray waxes and spray sealants provide instant shine and paint protection for the best quick detail spray shine possible on any paint finish.

    7-Quick Detailer
    Applying a detail spray is probably the quickest, easiest visual improvement you could perform on your car. They elevate shine tremendously while making wiping away dirt, dust and smudges an effortless task. Detail sprays are meant to top off your wax or paint sealant, not stand in for them. You apply a detail spray as a way to extend the life of your protectant.

    This is the enthusiast's approach..Unfortunately many bike owners are unable to invest a fortune on these exquisite products.For cars as they are expensive and luxury vehicles people always invest in detailing stuff..After all Detailing is an art

    My recommendations:
    Car shampoo-Armor all
    Wash mitt-Turtle's
    Couple of Microfiber towels--any brand would do
    Good quality Wax(one time investment)--Turtle ice liqid/paste wax
    7CF/Reviveall/Brasso/Turtle wax chrome polish

    R1 bhai basically there are two types of wax--Synthetic Polish and Non-synthetic Carnauba wax..Both share the same purpose and have advantages over each other..Synthetic polish lasts longer while carnauba wax gives better shine
