    So I've been going through my shelf of unused waxes and throught I'd throw a coat of S100 on my xB. I only have one coat on right now, but I love how easy it applies and the slickness of it! (And it smells like crayons! :rofl:)

    I was wondering though, how long can I expect this single coat to last in North Dakota? 3 Weeks, a month?

    3-6 weeks without adverse weather conditions. ND winters? 2 weeks.

    lol No, it's actually summer here, we haven't got snow since last week... (Not kidding, we had snow in June!) We actually got something like 18" of rain in the past 2 days, it's been weird.

    But in the winter I ran NXT 2.0 and would get about a month before it got stripped off below the window line, fucking salt.

    Thanks guys! I guess I'll see how it's doing in a month or two. I'm hoping it'll last since I've got a garage.

    :werd: I personally put S100/P21S into the "beauty wax" category as opposed to the "long term protection" category. It makes cars look wet, glossy, and deep, but it goes away fast. A month at the MOST.

    You can use it on top of some other products I think. The longer lasting stuff under the S100 which is really one of the shiniest top coatings I have ever seen.

    I usually do an s100 coat once a month because it's so wonderfully beautiful:love:
