    Hard to estimate how the products will be in 10-20 years. Not bad to buy the small 4 or 8 oz bottles depending on your needs abrasive technology is very good in some of these products right now and who knows could get better.

    16oz or less bottles are for the retail market and is usually a rip off when a 32oz bottle is not that much different in cost and is directed at professionals.

    Almost every product known to man costs less in volume that’s not the debate

    Re: Mhmmm Which to Choose AIO or Ultrafine Polish ?

    Heh heh, it`s not too frugal when a quart/gallon of product either goes bad (OK, mine hardly ever do) or is rendered an also-ran by some new development. I have all that [freakin`] M205 that I`ll *NEVER* use...and a fair bit of M105 too (even some of the great v1.0 stuff).

    I bought bulk for *AGES* and still do for some stuff, but I`ve learned to be a little careful about stocking up on things in certain categories.

    FK215 is awesome, but doesn`t get much talk around here - probably because it`s been around a while. I had the MUCH more expensive Wolfgang AIO and I liked my $11 bottle of FK just as much (but WG cuts more). Oddly, they are similarly colored.

    To the OP`s question: One thing I like about AIOs once a year (as opposed to a polish) is the ease of removal. With 3800, I`m rubbing pretty hard with Eraser to prep for sealant and wax. With an AIO, it`s not only not necessary, but you get some protection for your effort.

    WaxAddict- Yes indeed, pretty much every AIO I`ve ever used has been utterly Accumulator-proof (well, as long as I keep some of `em off the trim).

    Wonder why I never tried the FK215...does it stain trim?

    Might be a good opportunity for me now to get both the FK215 and FK100P to try if I can only find an online retailer that does not charge exuberant shipping cost. It seems Collinite products have now become more popular, but FK products are still not !

    How does FK215 perform ? Does it dust, long work time and what level of aggressiveness ?

    It didn’t for me but I always a bucket of rinseless wash nearby to wipe off trim if anything gets on it.

    Re: Mhmmm Which to Choose AIO or Ultrafine Polish ?

    Bert- Ah, OK. I was wondering whether it was "nasty staining like Autoglym SRP" or "fine on trim like KAIO" or somewhere in-between (sounds like that`s it).

    Might give this some consideration when I run out of ZAIO and SRP (doesn`t quite sound like a substitute for KAIO).

    Re: Mhmmm Which to Choose AIO or Ultrafine Polish ?

    Sorry Ed and Accum for the delay in response.

    Ed, 215 does not dust and removal is a breeze. It is not aggressive! It will correct holograms, love marks, light marring and very light swirls, but you`ll need something more "serious" for full-bore correction of scratches. It comes out very shiny using a white pad.

    Accum, I`m not a good advisor on "will it stain trim" because I astutely avoid trim with any polish or wax. When I first read you saying that 845 can be used on trim, I got "the vapors" and passed out. I still can`t bring myself to do it.

    Yup 845IW does not stain any trim, I let a neighbor try 845IW and now he swears its the greatest LSP he ever used since he is not an Autopian he only ever used big chain store cleaner waxes that leave white residue on his trims ! ...LoL

    Was going to get a bottle when they are on special at one of the large chain stores here, but after seeing your comment ...for sure no ! ...LoL

    Re: Mhmmm Which to Choose AIO or Ultrafine Polish ?

    WaxAddict- Ah, thanks for the added info. Interesting that it`ll correct..well, anything...for you. I can`t *EVER* recall any AIO ever doing any correction on any paint for me. Not once.

    And heh heh...I do like products that are OK on trim, simply takes the challenge of avoiding staining off the table. I`ve even used Collinite 476S and FK1000P on trim, rubber..plastic..you name it (but don`t try that at home, kids). I still use the Klasse twins on some trim bits.

    EdLancer- Despite that nasty trim-staining, and its dusting, I do like the SRP. Leaves better protection behind that most and I love how it looks on certain paints (and I usually scoff at such nit-picking). But it`s not in the "you gotta try this!" category IMO.

    Re: Mhmmm Which to Choose AIO or Ultrafine Polish ?

    Autoglym was one of the few so called Autopian products that was available over the counter at brick and mortar stores. Always wanted to try their SRP, but never got my hands on a bottle the only thing I have from Autoglym is their blueberry Foaming Soap. I think I am 90% sure in getting HD Speed as an AIO unless someone can convince me there is something better out there that is reasonably priced and easily available.

    Re: Mhmmm Which to Choose AIO or Ultrafine Polish ?

    EdLancer- Heh heh that appreciation of SRP I keep posting about might just me another of my foibles. But yeah, I do think it`s a pretty good product line.

    Since hearing that Speed plays nice with an FK1000P topper, I`ve figured it`s at least in the "nothing wrong with it" class.
