This great value kit contains 500ml of ready-to-use wax spray, and two good quality microfibre cloths. I’ve long used fairly expensive hard waxes on my bikes and cars, so was sceptical of this water-based spray. First impressions are good – it’s very simple to apply, and unlike my usual wax, doesn’t leave a hard-to-remove residue around details like raised badges and fasteners.
To test how hard-wearing it is, I divided my black car’s bonnet up into four patches to compare this, and a range of other brands: Collinite (a quality hard wax); SDoc100 Gloss Wax Spray and Meguiars NXT 2.0 Liquid Wax. The Bullet was easy to apply, but appeared thin compared to the others. However, after a week on the car, and around 300 miles of bad weather, the water is beading the same on all four patches. Running my nail across the bonnet, they all feel as smooth as each other, and the difference is clear compared to the untreated areas. In fact, the only one that wasn’t as smooth after a few weeks was the expensive Meguiars!
Being water-based, I’m also quite happy to use this wax on my Arai Rebel helmet – it’s keeping the shell shining, and the visor beautifully clear and rain-free. Bullet is effective, easy to apply, and great value: I’m very impressed!
