The Hi-Tech Yellow wax and NXT Generation Tech wax are the most durable waxes we make. If you like I can ship them out to ya with free shipping.

use several coats of whatever you get.. then durring the winter hit up a self wash bay.. use just water than the wax setting no soap.. yer car will look dull till spring hits but it will save yer paint in the end..

lil suggestion though.. when you hit up the self wash.. bring 2 people with you.. one to help you wash and one to stay in the car to help push the frozen door open.. last winter i spent about 20 minutes with frozen fingers trying to get my door open when it was like 3degrees out.. i ended up crawling through the trunk.. thank friggin god i had one of my back seats folded down.... .... yes i felt very very very stupid

If you want durability, you should use Poorboy's EX or EX-P. Of all the waxes I've tried (including Meg's Gold Class and NXT), they are the most durable I've used. Zaino is supposed to be really durable as well, but I have never tried it.

NXT looks good but the durablity sucks!!
I use Klasse All in one and Klasse Sealant glaze. I apply 3 coats of the selant glaze and next spring there is still klasse on the paint when I strip it off to start over.
Klasse AIO and SG
The AIO is great to apply to the rims. it doesnt wear off like carnuaba waxes do.
Try it you will LOVE it!

I would apply a few coats of NU Finish to your paint for the pre winter waxing. I do this every year, and my finish looks great in the summer.

Amen to that, fellow Autopian! Klasse is definitely the champ when it comes to durability.

Klasse is some durable stuff.

The NXT stuff looks real nice and it's easy as hell to put on, but I wouldn't solely rely on that for winter waxing.
