I know that much has been said about Collinite #845 Insolator wax but I just wanted to mention that every year I either buy into some other new wax, car polish or sealant from either some advertising or someone recommending something new to me. This year I decided I'm not going to buy any new product and went to my car finish product shelf full of half used stuff and decided I would try my 5 year old bottle of Collinite #845. All I can say is I really did not need to try anything new every year the "845" really works great and I think I'm just going to stick with it from now on it goes on easy comes off easy shines good enough and last longer then most other stuff I have tried.

I just clayed and put a coat of 845 on the RAV yesterday, all smooth and shiny and happy now. It really is nice stuff.

I guess I'll finally buy a bottle of this stuff online, and try it.

Hoping it won't be a total disappointment, like when I listened to people here about how good Michelin tires are.

They aren't.

I know it has a good reputation as a protection product. Many reviews seem to be positive.

That said...there are plenty of other products at a lesser price point that also provide outstanding protection while giving much better shine/finish results.

Here's just one of several comparison images on the web provided as an example:

DUH. Comparing it / reviewing it is a normal aspect of evaluating any product.

I have used Collinite 845 for likely over 10 yrs now, and like you, I have a shelf full of other stuff that will likely never get used again.

You will be hard pressed to find one of these cheaper waxes that will protect as good and as long as Collinite 845. I have used many others over the years, trust me, and nothing compares to the longevity of 845.

As far as shine goes, maybe, but the differences are negligible imo.

I suspect that's endlessly debatable. Both Chemical Guys and Meguiar's have products that claim the very same protection as Collinite 845 - and extensive testimony as such including comparisons for better gloss/shine and at a lower cost (there's no monopoly on durability).

As stated previously - no one is disputing Collinite 845 is a proven and solid product.

If you are going to purchase/use Collinite 845, be sure to follow the directions as seen on pg-1 of this post. Like he says, you want it about the consistency of milk and apply it using a very thin coat.
Good luck. Cheers2

Hyundai, since you are “new” around here I’ll give you some slack. The OP was not asking about comparable products, he was talking about Collinite in particular. That’s why I commented on your suggestions of other products.

Personally I do not use Collinite and I never have. That does not mean I should derail the thread with my own preferences. That would be impolite.

First of all...I don't need any slack. No one said anything derogatory about this precious topic.

Also, no one is "derailing" anything (except those who find the need to debate in a thread anytime someone doesn't rubber stamp an opinion). IF the purpose is to discuss Collinite 845 as a recommended product for the betterment of any readers who might want to consider using a product, then its totally appropriate to discuss its pros and cons, as well as alternatives. That has been done routinely on this site for numerous products.

One thing that people often fail to realize is that for Michelin tires to last as long as they do, the rubber must be very hard. The rubber being hard causes all sorts of problems in the rain (they slide) and in the snow(no grip). As a result of that and the fact that Michelin tires are among the most expensive around, I honestly believe that much better tires deal and performance are out there to be had!

I don't see a difference in shine in this pic, and I'm sure the Collinite will outlast the other two products...
