The High End Car Wax reviews

Definitive Wax Marble “Brough & Howarth”

You've just put a new set of $38,000 tires on your Bugatti Veyron after getting the $21,000 service and replacing the $12,000 set of wheels. You've had her hand washed by a pro, but you want that little something special to finish the job and make the paint look as much like a black hole as your wallet does. Brough & Howarth have the answer: a $37,000 canister of car wax.

Called "Definitive Wax Marble," the white-and-grey marble cube runs a cool 24,000 British pounds, or about $37,000 USD. The company claims the wax to be the rarest and most expensive in the world. Definitive Wax Marble is sourced from Athens, Greece, made of refined fruit oils, local Greek beeswax, and imported canauba wax from northern Brazil.

Brough & Howarth think the investment in a car's finish is well worth the price of entry, however, particularly for the rare and vintage collector. Some of these vehicles are valued at over GBP1m and are pieces of art in their own right, so the correct car care methods are critical in maintaining their value," says Jason Brough, Brough and Howarth's master polisher. "You can put a GBP5,000 bespoke, tailor-made suit in the washing machine and it would clean it. But you wouldn't, would you?"

Definitive Wax Marble is so exclusive, it's not even for sale. It's only available as a wax treatment through Brough & Howarth. Just the one pot of the wax exists.

The latest Definitive Wax Marble wunderpot is due for its own special unveiling soon at a "prestigious" London spot. Those with the cars and the cash to make use of this service probably already have an invitation. As for myself, I just wonder what $37,000 car wax smells like.
Price : £ 24,000 / $ 37,000 USD

Crystal Rock has been developed by Swissvax in partnership with Paul Dalton, probably the most renowned car detailer in the world.
With 76% by wax volume of pure Brazilian ivory carnauba wax, this wax has one of the highest Carnauba contents of any wax on the market. In effect, it coats a car’s paintwork in a smooth and glossy, yet tough and protective, water repellent film and even brings a shine to white and silver. A layer of ‘Paul Dalton’s Crystal Rock Wax’ can last up to 6-12 months and can be ‘topped up’ with additional layers for even more protection.
The waxes come in a satin pouch with a certificate personally signed by Paul himself.
Approx 76% Carnauba wax by volume.
Please Note: As with any premium wax your paintwork should be prepared and ready to accept the wax. For this product use a clay bar (if required) followed by Swissvax Cleaner Fluid as a pre-wax cleaner, before first applying any Swissvax Wax as the wax will not bond to bare paint surfaces.

Ideal Application:
Apply by hand or foam applicator pad with only a light pressure to form a uniform film. Leave for 10 minutes.
Buff off with a premium Microfibre cloth, turning occasionally to use a clean surface.
Try not to touch the paintwork for a minimum of 3 hours and if possible leave the car in the sun. During this time the luster will continue to deepen. A second buff may be beneficial at this time.
For best results (depending on vehicle usage):
After 1-3 months; simply wash, dry and just re-wax.
Then after 6-8 months; repeat the full treatment with Cleaner Fluid preparation and then wax.
Note that discounts do not apply to this product
