Try claying your ride first then apply wax to get that showroom shine.

I actually use different products depending on my mood.

Opti-Seal or Klasse AIO followed by Sealant Glaze (smells like liquid high-school gym socks) and then topped with whatever LSP I am feeling my cheerios for. My favorite paste wax is Harley Wax and liquid is the NXT 2.0 from Meguire's (simply because I got it for free and don't like liquid waxes).

For durability it is impossible to beat a synthetic paint sealant, however, for that wet, deep, complex, show-car shine it is impossible to beat properly formulated carnauba-based wax. If you can manage to get a carnauba with no cleaners/detergents/fragrance then you will avoid that annoying white residue that gets left on your black plastics and rubber seals.

Also...forget Rain-X. If you want a product that is INCREDIBLE on glass, try the Klasse AIO followed by the Klasse Sealant Glaze. I don't know what it is about that stuff...but it is incredible on glass and seems to last forever.

black magic liquid paste does leave a white residue on your black trim but it also leaves a nice shine. consumer reports rated it the best shine when it comes to polishes. also I was not impressed with liquid clay bar from turtle wax.

I was using meguiar's NXT Generation liquid tech wax then recently I started going all "ICE". Very happy with all their products so far. The interior cleaner is great, no residue, low/no gloss, nice smell. The ice goes on real easy. Did whole car with 1 ounce! Just don't over apply, very light coat. You can use it on plastic, chrome rubber and no white stuff left over. Do the whole exterior top to bottom with no residue worries. Not saying either is better but the ICE is little easier to apply both shine great. The quick detailer goes on the same way. Everyone has a preference but you can't go wrong with Ice or Meguires. I would be happy if I could only use either. Try em both! Turtle Wax web site has product demos for all their stuff.

I am a big fan of Meguiars products, and use the NXT Generation Tech Wax on my G6. It is pretty easy to use, and makes my car look better then the day I got it.

I don't use Turtle Wax chemicals in general but I will be 100% honest when I say that the quality of their microfiber towels is quite impressive.

Meg's has their store level line of products and they also have their professional line. The store level is decent and their pro line stands tall with the other boutiques.

The liquid claybar is simply a cleaner wax.

Just from personal experience I have to go with NXT 2.0 If you guys are getting it to dry to a white residue you're leaving it on for to long or applying it WAY to thick.

For under $20 I would say NXT 2.0 is the best for the consumer.

Waxes over $50 and what not I have to go with
Chemical Guys 50/50, Wolfgang Sealant 3.0 , Blackfire Midnight Sun Carnauba Paste Wax and then Dodo juice supernatural.

Good boutiques. The main problem with white residue on the Wal-Mart waxes is when you get them on black plastic trim. Doesn't matter how fast you get it off...you're going to have white residue. Wax Blaster is a good way to remove it if you're short of Prep Solvent.

Actually...I've never heard of Dodo juice. Guess I should go back into my study and use of different products. Been off the scene for a few years.

The point is not to get wax on the trim from the beginning.

If I do, I usually use a good all purpose cleaner and go at it with a toothbrush.

I used Turtle wax Ice on all the body and black plastic on my Wife's liberty three months ago, not a lick of residue yet....

Huh no love (or even hate) for




I used it on my Blue Green Crystal Grand Prix and not only did it really bring out the deep color, but after having put on 7-8 coats in the first couple years I had slacked and not put on any additional the last 2 years I had it but it still looked really good after just a washing

Here it is going to the dogs :

Ziano is pretty good stuff, but I prefer others to it.

Remember, a good deep gloss finish can only be achieved with a good polished surface.
