    Did this for a friend of mine this weekend. Its a 1998 BMW 740iL. Car had no wax left on it and the paint was in 'average' shape. Sorry that I didn't get before pictures. Went with the #16 over S100 or Pinnacle because I don't think he'll wax it for at least a few months.

    looks good. Wrong filter used though, the whole picture has a bluish grey tint to it.

    Looks good but the color is off. Paint looks real wet. :drool:

    What are your impressions of #16?

    I need to get a good coat of wax on the Mercedes and the Jag I picked up this weekend. I think I'm going to go with the Klasse two step and top it with #16.
    Been sticking with the S100 but it doesn't seem to hold up as well as I would like.

    #16 is very good wax. Doesn't seem to have the slickness and clarity (personally) of S100, but extremely close. Also, the whole thing w/ doing one panel at a time is a must, because you can really get a good workout if you let it put too much on or let it sit a little too long.

    Have had it on my M Coupe for about 2 months now and still beading like a champ and looking great!
