Griots speed wax is good for a quick refresh.

Wasn't an ICE fan until the new formula came out recently... I like it now. Much better looking than the older formula.

Ice detailer is the best in my opinion and its not too expensive, they have it here in Naples at Wally World for $6.77, thats reasonable...

The best I've ever used was called WOW. A guy I know bought a gallon of it for his vintage Camaro, sold the car and had about a quart left over. This stuff is amazing, the best I've ever used BY FAR! It's great even on your windows and windshield.

If anyone can find where to buy this stuff please post a link because I am just about out.

There is a new product on the market called Parrot Shine. It comes in concentrate form and you mix it with water in a spray bottle and spray it on. Let it sit for a minute or so then rinse it off. It is designed to make the wax on your car last longer. I use it on my explorer, my Father's 2012 Silverado, and Sister's 02 Cavalier once a month, it takes about 5 minutes. No swirls, no paint issues. The parrot shine makes the water bead up and roll off the car and windhsield. I now only have to wax the cars twice a year and they look as good as when I did it 4 times a year. If you spray extra on the front bumper, bugs wash off without having to use bug and tar remover or any deep scrubbing.

I used Ice products last summer, I got a few streaks at times. I'm using the Meguiars products this summer, happy with the end result. I recommend Meguiars.

The streaking is normal. The directions mention something about using a damp cloth if streaking occurs. I thought the ICE was ok, but I wasn't that impressed. The search for better continues.

Yea ive had some streaking with Ice as well but I do the damp cloth thing and it works...I dont think there is any 1 "perfect" product its all a matter of personal choice.
