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 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. :p

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

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 :glasses3:

Here it is going to the dogs :D :

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.

Exactly right. Detailing is like building a house. Each stage requires that the previous stage have been done correctly. If you don't prep correctly then you cannot detail correctly.

There was a television show on where some british guy charged rich people THOUSANDS of dollars to do a detail...and then he's using fricken bath towels on the car and scrubbing on the rims and finish with a normal run-of-the-mill sponge. It doesn't matter how fancy your equipment is if you're an idiot.

One argument could be that if he's going to polish all of the marring out anyway then what is the big deal...and that's fine until you realize that when you polish out a scratch you are removing the paint down to the bottom of the scratch (or removing enough finish to dull the edges of the scratch so that they do not reflect light)...and a car only has so much paint on it.

The first time I used this stuff I was the most pleased with the even aplication and deep color it gave my car. Has anyone used this stuff and tried something else they like better?
I haven't tried the liquid, but use the paste & have no complaints. I have also used Carnuba wax (can't recall the brand name at present). Seems to outlast the majority of other paste waxes. Recently won a prize at a car show that had Duralast products in it. GOOD STUFF!!! :bigok:

I know this is kinda of reviving an old thread but this past weekend I used Meguiar's Gold Class paste wax and was really happy with the results. Made the paint look like new!
