I like Meguiars products, they are all good. Meguiars gold is good, but the one I use the most is the NXT generation syntethic wax because itīs very easy to rub on and off the car.
Meguires Ultimate Spray Car Wax is the same synthetic polish chemical used in NXT 2.0 wax and you can apply it in about 1/8th the time as the rub on stuff.

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking about this liquid wax stuff. Again, I have never waxed a car before but I can't wrap my head around the idea that liquid, oily product would last just as long as a thicker paste product.

In what area? When the car is properly prepped and the application is done properly in the correct steps with multiple layers, the shine is as good as any. But where it really stands out is the protection and the longevity of the protection. Isn't colinite actual carnauba wax? No way a real wax is going to last as long as a synthetic sealant.

+1

As you say, Zaino is really nothing special looks wise but it is very long lasting.

I don't use it any more because I like to "wax" more often (its a bonding thing, ) but the Zaino was very good for holding up in the Arizona sun.

As long as you keep it applied it protects.

Plus..it wont mess with the stripes..especially the black matt ones like i have.

Carnuba wax can ruin stripes and even the paint itself if not fully removed and allowed to bond. No thanks!

ya I mean that makes sense about the stripes, I have them as well.

What do you mean keep it applied? How often do you have to apply this stuff??

The ice also comes in a paste, and leaves no white mess.
