If Cost Equals Quality - These Folks Have it

The fleet at the McDonald garage get a bathing on a pretty regular basis. Insects, road dirt and the occasional bird poo get cleaned off by the backyard hose and whatever auto "shampoo" that I have laying the around the house at the time. Most of the British car shows that I attend are pretty generous with car wash supplies as door prizes or goody bag stuffers. I am indeed grateful for them.

For those of significant means, there are vendors quite happy to assist them in getting the very best car care supplies for their eleventy-bazillion dollar rides. One of them is Swissvax. 

Swissvax advertises in a number of publications that I regularly browse and I've never really read their ads in depth for the reasons outlined above. Lately, I have and they are not shy about quoting prices for their products. The one that caught my eye is their Swissvax Crystal Rock product. It's available in the US of A from their American importer for $1,499.00. 

Yep, you read it right. In their defense, Swissvax says that the product contains "over 76% Vol. of pure ivory coloured Grade one Carnauba wax from Northern Brazil". That must be a good thing - I can't even remember which British car show awarded me the gallon of wash shampoo that I've been using for the last few years. 

Swissvax also carries several other wax products at comparatively reasonable costs - still too dear for my drivers, though. 

One intriguing offer on the US web site is an extensive car care guide. I'm not sure that I'll be requesting one but if you do, let me know. 

 Happy waxing!

  1. Well, if you buy some and only use it on the Mini it should last awhile. And I know that you'll let me borrow some for the "A".


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment
