    Okay, I'm doing a "group" order for work from http://specialtymotoring.com
    Just me and my boss. But I have a quick question.

    For him (white dodge dakota 4 door), we're getting a bottle of Vanilla Moose, and a bottle of EX-P.

    But I'm having trouble with my decision. I have a 2000 bright red Pontiac Grand Prix. I've been using S100 up till now. I like reflections, but I want a wet look. The main reason I'm ordering EX-P is to use something strong for the winter (read: road salt). Would EX-P or EX be better? I'm also ordering some Vanilla Moose too.

    With a red car, I'd get the EX w/carnauba. If you had a vehicle with sharp lines like a Cadillac CTS, I'd say go with EX-P but on cars with curvy bodies, EX looks better on reds and especially black paint. Gives the paint a deeper, more liquid look instead of wet reflections.

    Since your boss is ordering EX-P, that does give you the chance to try both if you wish, but I think on your color and body style, EX will look better. Both have decent durability.
